Bitterroot artist/shaman featured in film “Sundancing With the Muse, Heyoka Merrifield's Sacred Art Story,” a feature film by Missoula filmmaker Jason Gutzmer, will premiere at the Roxy Theatre in downtown Missoula on Saturday, May 22 at 5 and 7 p.m. Merrifield and Gutzmer will be in attendance. In “Sundancing with the Muse,” viewers discover the importance of the sacred in art, the sacred in the earth and a ceremonial life that makes them one.
