Looks into the Night

A report on Looks into the Night. It's "an award-winning film" by Lorraine Norrgard, which "the Cloquet filmmaker directed in 1997." It's apparently a drama.

Cloquet woman’s film looks at American Indians in medicine

By Christa LawlerThe film stars actor Tantoo Cardinal, who was in “Dances with Wolves” and “Legends of the Fall,” Valerie Red-Horse and Kimberly Norris, and was a small-budget piece funded by grants from the American Film Institute and Native American Public Broadcasting Consortium and produced with volunteer actors and stage crews.

It is the story of an American Indian medical student’s attempts to combine traditional ways with modern medicine.
