American auteur Martin Scorsese returns to cinemas with a riveting adaptation of David Grann's bestselling, nonfiction novel Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI. In the midst of the Roaring 1920s, unexpected fortune comes to the members of the Osage Nation in Oklahoma after oil is discovered under their land. This overnight wealth disturbs the racial hierarchy established by white settlers. Soon after, members of the Osage Nation are mysteriously murdered one after another forcing the nascent FBI to investigate. Told through the surprising romance of Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Mollie Kyle (Lily Gladstone), Killers of the Flower Moon is an epic American western crime saga that crosses real love with unspeakable betrayal.
The 4PM showing on 11/09 will be preceded by a guest introduction from Melissa Horner (Métis/Anishinaabe), a Doctoral Candidate in Sociology at the University of Missouri-Columbia, as a way to support viewers' understandings of the film as the first-of-its-kind collaboration between Hollywood and an Indigenous community-the Osage Nation. Melissa will introduce various lenses to watch the film through, including representation of Native Peoples and how film connects to broader social structures-past and ongoing.
