A sneak preview of a new film produced by Chris Eyre will be shown at New York University on Fri., Oct. 27, 6 p.m. at NYU’s Cantor Film Center (36 E. 8th Street at University Place). The event, which will be followed by a panel discussion that includes Eyre and “Imprint” director Michael Linn, marks the launch of NYU’s Native People’s Forum-a group of NYU faculty, staff, and students was formed to engage New York City’s indigenous people’s community through events that focus on cultural, political, and historical aspects of indigenous and Native American society. New York City is home to an estimated 60,000 to 80,000 Native Americans-the largest Native American population of any U.S. city.
