Abstract:

The lives of two young Native American men, Victor Joseph and Thomas Builds-the-Fire, were literally connected by accident when both were infants and Arnold, Victor's father, saved Thomas's life. The two have radically different memories of Arnold Joseph-- Victor only remembers his father's alcoholism, abuse, and abandonment, while Thomas prefers to remember Arnold as a hero, exaggerating Arnold's life and deeds in a mythmaking fashion that drives Victor crazy. When Arnold dies, Thomas offers Victor funding for the trip from a Idaho to Phoneix to get Arnold's remains, but only if Thomas goes with him. In Phoenix, a confrontation with the reality of the dead man's legacy has a profound effect on both young men. Smoke signals is the first feature film written, directed, and co-produced by a Native American.
