There are few names as highly regarded as Wes Studi. The Academy Award-winning “Dances with Wolves,” “Hostiles,” and “Heat” actor helped break down Hollywood’s Native American stereotypes through his layered characters and honest depictions of Native Americans in non-traditional roles. As part of their residency at the Metrograph, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will be celebrating the esteemed actor with a special screening of one of his most iconic films.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present a special screening of Michael Mann‘s Academy Award-winning historical epic “The Last of the Mohicans” in celebration of Wes Studi who will also be in attendance. Studi’s portrayal of the Native American warrior Magua was both ruthless and authentic in what ranks among his finest performances. In 2019, Studi was awarded the Governors Award, honoring a lifetime of exceptional work and thus this event will further celebrate the actor’s most recent achievement.

“The Last of the Mohicans” stars Daniel Day-Lewis and is set in 1757 during the French and Indian War. Day-Lewis plays Hawkeye, the adopted white son of a Mohican warrior who risks his life to keep his beloved Cora (Madeline Stowe) safe from the bloodshed of the conflict while guided by the treacherous Magua (Wes Studi), a Huron warrior. Mann’s epic was lauded for its breathtaking cinematography, compelling performances, sweeping score by the late Trevor Jones, and Academy Award-winning sound design that places you in the thick of battle.

This special screening of “The Last of the Mohicans” will take place at the Metrograph (No. 7 Ludlow Street) on Fri. March 13, 2020, at 7:00 PM ET. For tickets and more information visit https://metrograph.com/film/film/2461/the-last-of-the-mohicans.
