November 7, 2012 

The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University presents "Smokin' Fish", with director and producer, Luke Griswold-Tergis as part of the South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 6 p.m. Following a screening of his feature film, "Smokin'Fish," Griswold-Tergis and the audience will engage in a discussion about the film and his work as a filmmaker during a reception.

In the documentary "Smokin' Fish," Cory Mann is a quirky Tlingit businessman hustling to make a dollar in Juneau, Alaska. He gets hungry for smoked salmon, nostalgic for his childhood, and decides to spend a summer smoking fish at his family's traditional fish camp. Scott Bishop, Education Curator for the museum, described the story as one man's attempts to navigate the messy zone of collision between the modern world and an ancient culture.
