Thursday, October 26, 2023 – Telling the “Killers of the Flower Moon” story

Renowned director Martin Scorsese’s vision for the new movie, “Killers of the Flower Moon”, changed early in the production. He said he realized he wanted to be more respectful of the Osage Nation and its people in telling the dark period in their history. He brought on Osage consultants and Native talent throughout all aspects of the production from the script to the wardrobe. We’ll get perspectives on how this painful history was handled on screen.
