An Emmy-nominated documentary about Hungry Horse will be shown at the Stonefly Lounge in Coram on Oct. 3. The film plays starting at 8 p.m.

Pieter ten Hoopen’s “Hungry Horse,” put out through MediaStorm, looks at the struggles affecting residents in this canyon town, from poverty and drug use to loneliness and loss. But it also shows the strength and peace many of the residents find living in such stunning scenery.

The film was nominated for an Emmy award in the New Approaches: Arts, Lifestyle, Culture category.

Ten Hoopen, a Swedish photographer, spent about 10 years making the film, after the town caught his attention during a trip here. He will be at the Oct. 3 showing to discuss the film and answer questions.

The Beacon wrote about the film in 2014.
