Six Indigenous Shorts from the Sundance Institute
Location: Bartos Screening Room
As part of National Native American and Alaska Native Heritage Month, the Museum will present a program of six Indigenous short films made by Sundance Institute Fellows—a program that showcases the diversity, creativity, and immense talent of these emerging filmmakers. Organized by Sundance Institute’s Indigenous Program and Art House Convergence (AHC). Approximate running time: 50 mins.
Dir. Marja Helander (Sámi). 2018, 11 mins. Examining the deeper questions of the ownership of the Sami land through the ballet performances of two young dancers.
Dir. Sky Hopinka (Ho-Chunk/Pechanga Band of Luiseño). 2015, 8 mins. Against landscapes that the artist and his father traversed, audio of the father in the Ho-Chunk language is transcribed using the International Phonetic Alphabet, which tapers off, narrowing the distance between recorder and recordings, new and traditional, memory and song.
