In the spirit of #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth, @sundanceorg's Indigenous Program is sharing a bit about why we celebrate Indigenous filmmakers and the importance of supporting them to tell their own stories and break the mold of what’s possible.

Not a diss to anyone putting out the list or Letterboxd; glad they’re highlighting Indigenous voices. It’s very much needed! Let’s just not forget that many Indigenous filmmakers have been making work since cinema found its feature length.

In North America alone, these are just a few of the folks that had made features from the 1920’s-1990’s. Their work is worth tracking down, if you can: Edwin Carewe Finis Fox Wallace Fox Emilio Fernández Arlene Bowman Victor Masayesva Jr. Chris Spotted Eagle Shelley Niro

Great list of important films and stoked to see Part Two… but I hate to be that guy, but gotta point out that there were way more Indigenous writer-directors making feature films in the 20th century than that.

“By the end of the 20th century, barely a half-dozen Indigenous writer-directors had completed a feature film.” Part One of our New Native Cinema holiday long read is here: @maorimovies applauds pioneering #Indigenous feature filmmakers. More 👉🏾

Most everyone in the home video collector community is aware of our sale (and @SeverinFilms) but please take a look at what some other great companies are doing today: @CinemaGuild @GhopperFilm @ArbelosFilms @Film_Movement @CultEpics It's a great day to support small companies!

the Beatles doc is great for the content of the footage itself, but the AI-generated smoothness is one of the more visually unappealing things in recent memory. it’s a decision that confuses texture as a flaw, with every shot looking slightly out of focus and with no focal point.

Tomorrow marks the day that Indigenous activists took over Alcatraz in 1969, an occupation that lasted 19 months and drew national attention to Indigenous civil rights. @TheAutry has just digitized a key artifact from the occupation: its log book.

If America isn’t a racist country, your place of birth and the state you represent wouldn’t still be colonized by America.

If America is a racist country, Arbery’s killers would not have been found guilty by a nearly all-white jury in Georgia. Most Americans (of all colors) believe in Dr. MLK’s adage that as God’s children we should be judged by the content of our character, not the color of our skin
