Now, with his second film, he not only writes, produces--and plays a bit part-- but makes his debut as a director. The Business of Fancydancing uses the same title as Alexie's debut collection of poems and stories and shows the same deep knowledge of life on the reservation.

The film was voted Best Narrative Feature Film at the Duranago Film Festival and won the Audience Awards at the Victoria Film Festival, the San Francisco Film Festival, and Outfest, among other honors.
