Vesterheim Filmprat: John, the Last Cowboy Viewing

November 11, 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

Vesterheim Filmprat: John, the Last Cowboy Viewing

Screening on Friday, November 10 (7:00-9:00 pm CT)
Discussion on Saturday, November 11 (1:00 pm-2:15 pm CT)

Location: Film viewing is hybrid – in-person in Vesterheim Commons or online on Zoom.
Discussion is online on Zoom.

In a twist on Vesterheim’s monthly bokprat discussions led by Dr. Maren Anderson Johnson, we’ll view and discuss the film John, the Last Cowboy in November!

This film screening will be hosted live in Vesterheim Commons and simultaneously live-streamed – join us Friday night online or in-person. The discussion will take place online only on Saturday afternoon.

The documentary is centered on 92-year-old John Hoiland as he manages his large ranch in Montana all by himself. Although wealthy people are lining up to buy his property, John’s wealth is not in the value of the ranch but rather in the freedom to work his own land.

If viewing the film in person, just show up!

If participating online, one registration will sign you up for both the screening and discussion! Register here.

Feel free to attend only the film viewing or only the discussion.
