What started as a one-man show — The War Shirt , starring actor-dancer Michael Downey and directed by artist Rod Lathim — has evolved a step further into a new documentary.  The War Shirt: A Dialogue with the Ancestors , a locally created and nurtured project that embraces and explores Native American and African American cultural traditions and history, will have its world premiere on Tuesday, September 19, at 7:30 p.m. at the Marjorie Luke Theatre. The screening of the 45-minute documentary will be free to the public and open-captioned, with the live post-film elements of the evening including sign language interpretation.
