Mile Post 398 debuts

Mile Post 398 world premiere packs house in KayentaMile Post 398, the first feature film written, directed and produced by internationally-acclaimed filmmakers Shonie and Andee De La Rosa-made its world premiere in Kayenta Jan. 6. The packed auditorium of Monument Valley High School was near capacity with almost 400 people.

The film is a look into a life of a fictional reservation character in his early to mid-thirties. Cloyd, who is living in Kayenta, is married with a young son and battles with alcoholism and drug abuse. Throughout the movie he tries to find direction, clean up his act and become the family man that his wife and son need. He decides one day to make amends with his family, but has to fight a battle with what his conscience is telling him and the pressures he is facing from his so-called friends who still want him to return to his life of drinking and drug abuse.
