Mark, 63, was auditioning for the character Wilbert Tsosie for the upcoming feature film "The Broken Circle."
The movie is based on the 1992 non-fiction book of the same name, which uses the 1974 torture-murders of three Navajo men by three Anglo teenagers near Farmington to examine racial tensions in the community and the impact of the murders.
In a nearby exhibit hall, Ernest Tsosie III sat on a bench studying the script.
"(I'm) trying to get into the movies," Tsosie said jokingly.
