Matriarchal Voices–Stories of Indigenous Women Filmmakers – “Spider Woman’s Call”

Hosted by Director Jennifer Machiorlatti

Matriarchal Voices – Stories of Indigenous Women Filmmakers is a lyrical documentary series presenting stories about the storytellers – Indigenous women who use film, video, and multimedia to carry on storytelling traditions through contemporary media.  “Spider Woman’s Call” – episode one of the series focuses on five filmmakers from the U.S. and Canada who share their motivations for working in cinematic storytelling—from cultural recovery and celebration to the importance of historical accuracy.
