)-- Kelly and Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films, Emmy® nominated producers of the award-winning "Lost Nation: The Ioway" will appear for a special Kansas Humanities Council preview screening of their new documentary "Lost Nation: The Ioway 2&3" at the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, Casino White Cloud Bingo Hall, 777 Jackpot Drive, White Cloud, Kansas on Monday, December 17, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. Following the film presentation, the Rundles will join Ioway Tribal Elder Emil Campbell of Kansas City, and other film participants for Q&A. The event is free to the public.
The Ioway and other American Indians, historians, anthropologists and archaeologists tell the dramatic and true story of the small tribe that once claimed the territory between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers from Pipestone, Minnesota to St. Louis.
"It's a story of perseverance, strength and survival," said director Kelly Rundle.
Through their fiscal sponsor Kansas Public Telecommunications Service, Inc. (KPTS-PBS), the documentary sequel project was awarded a grant from Kansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities for production in Kansas.
Set to premiere in 2013, "Lost Nation: The Ioway 2&3", the special KHC preview screening offers the public a sneak-peek at the new films. Public screenings and a DVD release will follow. An alternative soundtrack in the nearly extinct Ioway language will be offered on the DVD.
