2017-2018 Film Series Season
Welcome to the Augsburg Native American Film Series! This year is full of variety and energy. We will update this page as our season progresses so check in periodically.
November 8: INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./ it flies.falls./] (directors Zack and Adam Khalil,2016)
This experimental documentary explores the Ojibwe story of the Seven Fires Prophecy, which has been interpreted as predicting the arrival of the Europeans in North America and the subsequent destruction they caused. Bold, smart, and unflinching, the film examines the relationship between cultural tradition and modern indigenous identity.
March 28: NATIVE AMERICAN CONVERSATIONS ON LAW ENFORCEMENT, JUSTICE, AND REDEMPTION
Join us for an evening of short films focusing on issues of racism, law enforcement, and redemption from various Native American experiences. Our hosts represent two Native American media organizations–Vision Maker Media and MIGIZI Communications–which work with filmmakers to produce and distribute Native focused documentaries and shorts on issues important to Native American communities. The evening will include conversation and a variety of short films.
