Get out this Labor Day weekend to attend the locally-produced "Turquoise Rose" with local Diné actors.

This coming of age story details the life of a Diné woman from Arizona raised in the suburbs of Phoenix. "Turquoise" attends college and while interning as a photojournalist at a local paper learns that her grandmother is terribly ill. She is asked to care for her ailing grandma, and suddenly must choose between a vacation to Rome and her family on the Navajo Nation.

The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 31; and at 12 noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 1, at the Northern Arizona University Cline Library located at the intersection of Knoles Drive and McCreary Road across from the University Union.
