-- On its opening night of a special engagement, "Yai Wanonabalewa:
The Enemy God" filled the theater with movie goers eager to see something they'd never seen before. They were not disappointed. The film tells the true story of a powerful Yanomamö shaman from the Amazon. His supernatural struggles for the survival of his people have been holding audiences spellbound in festivals in the U.S. and internationally. Made with a cast of indigenous actors in the Central American country of Belize, "The Enemy God" combines the truthfulness of documentary filmmaking with the excitement and storytelling of a dramatic feature.
A special treat at these screenings is the chance to interact and ask questions of the filmmakers, Tom Khazoyan and Matt Castagna, of 10X Productions, the local film production company that made the film.
The film screens again tomorrow - Sunday, October 25th, at 3:00 PM. Information about the Starz FilmCenter, advance tickets for purchase, and directions can be found at the Denver Film Society's web site: http://www.denverfilm.org
