The Legend of Two Path Film

The Legend of Two-Path is a docu-drama illustrating the American Indian perspective of the Roanoke Voyages.  It is based on facts as recorded by Europeans, the only written information available.  The Legend of Two-Path captures the main themes of the history and dramatizes the meeting of two very separate and distinct cultural groups. North Carolina School of the Arts students produced and directed this film and developed the relationships and dialogue between the characters. 

The main theme that can be taken from this film is the concept of choice. The American Indians were faced with a choice of embracing the western culture or rejecting it.  The choices they made then, the path they chose, helped determine their history.

"We enjoyed watching the movie about the American Indians that lived on Roanoke Island and how they helped new arrivals. It showed how the settlers treated the natives, both the good and the bad. Very well done." - Becky S. from Johnson City, TN
