The Velvet Devil, from director Larry J. Bauman, is a visually compelling adaptation of Andrea Menard's play about a young Métis woman who leaves her mother, her native culture, and her home to find fame as "the Velvet Devil" a 1940's singing sensation. The film shows Velvet's journey from home to stardom and her return, a journey of spirit, memory, identity, and joy. Featuring actor, singer/songwriter, playwright and screenwriter Andrea Menard (Métis). (WestWind Pictures Ltd, 85 min.)

Richard R. Martel, former Commissioner on the
Denver American Indian Commission
will lead an audience discussion
after the film screening.
