ACTION: CATCH NATIVE NATIONS AT ARTISTS’ TELEVISION ACCESS
With President Trump’s green-lighting of the Dakota Pipeline, it is clear that Native voices have been more marginalized than ever. That is why we are especially pleased to direct you to go to ATA’s Native Nations, featuring the break-out first feature from Ojibway filmmakers Adam (in person) and Zack Khalil, a formally and intellectually complex film on contemporary Indian identity. The kaleidoscopic experience mixes doc, narrative, and experimental modes, transcending linear colonized history to explore how tribal prophecy resonates through the generations in their Great Lakes region. Using personal interviews, animated drawings, performance, and provocative inter-cutting, the Khalil brothers’ debut makes a bold case for indigenous people to be their own storytellers. Opening is a half-hour of Anti-Ethnographies, including righteous satires by Guillermo Gomez-Pena & Gustavo Vazquez; come early for Jota Leaños’ animated Frontera: Revolt on the Rio Grande! Admission $7.
