Reel Injun (2009, NR)
From the silent era and Hollywood blockbusters to contemporary independent films from native filmmakers, ”Reel Injun” presents a history of the images of native peoples in film. With clips from hundreds of classic and recent Hollywood movies, and candid interviews with celebrated Native and non-Native film celebrities, activists, film critics, and historians, the film looks at how the myth of “the Injun” has influenced the world’s understanding – and misunderstanding – of Native peoples.
This film is part of our Thursday Nights @ the Museum series, presenting groundbreaking documentaries on acclaimed contemporary artists and files by Indigenous filmmakers this season in complement to our special exhibit, “Duality: Contemporary Works by Indigenous Artists.” For more information, visit longmontmuseum.org or call 303-651-8374.
