Wine reception follows screening

Washington, D.C. Premiere On May 17, 1832 the German ethnologist and naturalist Prince Maximilian zu Wied and the young Swiss artist Karl Bodmer set out on a long and adventurous journey into the vast prairies of North America to explore and document the Native Americans. Bodmer’s depictions of the tribal peoples he encountered are considered to be some of the most accurate and detailed western images of contemporary Indian life. They were incorporated into Maximilian’s published journal, “Travels in the Interior of North America.” Using entries from the journal, filmmaker Luke Gasser recreates Bodmer’s adventures. Directed by Luke Gasser. Produced by Danny Ming.

Introduced by Norbert Bärlocher, Counselor, Head of Communications and Cultural Affairs, Embassy of Switzerland. Discussion with filmmaker Luke Gasser follows screening.
