Eyre's EdgeOfAmerica was the 2004 Sundance Film Festival "opening night" film. EdgeOfAmerica is loosely based on the true story of a black English teacher who goes to the Three Nations Reservation to teach, but ends up coaching the very underachieving girls basketball team and takes them all the way to the state finals. In the process, he learns as much about their culture and race relations in America as they learn about winning and self-esteem. On January 29, 2006, Eyre won the DGA's award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Children's Programs for EdgeOfAmerica, becoming the first Native American to win the award.

A Thief of Time is a who-dunnit that intertwines very competitive anthropologists, possible artifact thievery, a missing professor, and the legend of the Anasazi.
