Sunday. April 25, 2010
Native American filmmakers have explored the Native American boarding school experience. This year, the Native American Film Series honors the stories of boarding school victims by presenting a series of films, both documentaries and fictional works . This year's theme is "Cultural Survival: Beyond Boarding Schools." Special guest Georgina Lightning, director of Older Than America, a thriller, will present her film and give a talk on how the boarding school experience resonates through modern Native America.
The Native American Film Series, entering its fifth year, celebrates contemporary filmmaking by Native American directors and actors. Contemporary Native filmmaking empowers Native Americans to tell their own stories and show audiences that the cultures survive, as they always will. The Native American Film Series runs from 2 pm to 12 midnight. Ms. Lightning will present her film at 4:45 pm, with a talk to follow.
