The Murder of Hi Good
The Murder of Hi Good is a true-crime revisionist western shot on 35mm, Super 16mm, Super 8mm and digital video. Set in Northern California in 1870, the film details the eventual murder of California's most notorious Indian hunter, Hiram Good. Created over a seven year period by filmmaker Lee Lynch and co-written by art critic Doug Harvey, the film features a diverse set of performers including Los Angeles based artists, western re-enactors, and regional American Indians.
The screening will be accompanied by a short lecture by historian Richard Burrill, who served as a consultant on the project. Burrill's studies focus on California's Gold Rush Era through the First World War, with a particular interest in California Indian history and culture. Burrill lives in Chico, California, and is a distinguished scholar and author on the subject of Ishi, the last "wild Indian" of North America. In 2010, Burrill published the exhaustive Hi Good Cabin Report, in response to the archaeological dig that took place on the original property of the late Indian hunter.
