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 Idaho to Phoenix 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.
