The large-framed and ponytailed filmmaker Chris Eyre is a member of the Cheyenne/Arapaho tribes of Oklahoma. After receiving his M.A. from N.Y.U., he was inspired by the book The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fist Fight in Heaven by [[Performer~P235736~Sherman Alexie~shermanalexie]]. Using much of the material from the chapter "This Is What It Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona," [[Performer~P235736~Alexie~shermanalexie]] adapted his novel into the screenplay for Eyre's feature-film debut, [[Feature~V160456~Smoke Signals~smokesignals]]. A road movie about two young men from the Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation, [[Feature~V160456~Smoke Signals~smokesignals]] premiered at Sundance and earned much festival acclaim. After working as a producer and directing the music video "Things We Do" for the blues-rock band Indigenous, Eyre got to work on his second feature film, [[Feature~V261169~Skins~skins]]. Based on the debut novel by poet [[Performer~P317985~Adrian C. Louis~adrianclouis]], [[Feature~V261169~Skins~skins]] is a story about the Ogala Sioux reservation at the site of the infamous Wounded Knee. Starring [[Performer~P199626~Graham Greene~grahamgreene]], the film was highly regarded on the festival circuit and received a limited theatrical release in the U.S. Switching over to television, Eyre directed the mystery [[Feature~V271590~Skinwalkers~skinwalkers]], based on the book by [[Performer~P285062~Tony Hillerman~tonyhillerman]] and broadcast as part of the PBS anthology series American Mystery. In addition to sitting on the board of the Native American Producers Alliance, Eyre's next television projects included A Thief of Time and Edge of America. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
