Navajo Film Themselves (1966)

October 25, 2014 @ 3:00 PM

$10

UCLA Film & Television Archive, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and Hollywood Foreign Press Association present “Through Indian Eyes: Native American Cinema.”

 

Navajo Film Themselves (1966)
Directed by Mike Anderson, Al Clah, Susie Benally, Johnny Nelson, Mary Jane Tsosie, Maxine Tsosie and Alta Kahn.
In 1966, communications scholar Sol Worth and anthropologist Peter Adair undertook a project to impart documentary filmmaking skills to Navajo people. The resulting works have been debated as to what they reveal about Native perspectives, but are now regarded as canonical works of visual anthropology, and stand as early glimpses of possibilities for Native American cinematic expression on its own terms.
Digital video from 16mm, b/w, silent, approx. 120 min.

FREE Admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.!
