Fans of Richard Wagamese's award-winning story Indian Horse — who missed seeing the film on the big screen — will get another chance to see the movie in a social setting.

This week, the Thompson Rivers University Student Union (TRUSU) equity committee is hosting a viewing of the Canadian film at the university.

Saul Indian Horse (the protagonist) grows up away from his family in one of Canada's residential schools, where he excels at hockey. Without giving too much away, he struggles with racism, the public spotlight and past traumas throughout his life.

The TRUSU committee will be showing Indian Horse (which also won awards) on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at TRUSU's Common Grounds Coffee Shop, located in the Students' Union Building (attached to the Campus Activity Centre). Things get going at 6 p.m.
