Presenting Films from Young Native American Filmmakers

The Mitchell Museum will host the Fall 2019 First Nations Film and Video Festival on November 14th, 6:00pm-7:30pm.

Join us for a program of films made by tribal youth, featuring “Ahomapénî: Relations and Rez Dogs”, a documentary by Jarret Twoyoungmen, Canadian Nakoda, and the Nakoda AV Club. The film explores the question, “What do dogs need to be healthy and happy?” to illuminate different conceptions of human-animal relationships on reserves and in settler dominated spaces. “Acorn” and additional short films will also be shown.

Film has had the most significant influence in how people view Native American imagery and cultural information. Now, Indigenous filmmakers are reclaiming control of this medium through first-voice and self representation. First Nations Film and Video Festival, Inc. shares a key mission with the Mitchell Museum in presenting a Native American perspective to audiences and is dedicated to supporting Native American directors from the US, Canada, Central and South America, and Mexico.
