Indigenous Showcase: Sandy Osawa Retrospective
In the spirit of giving this week, we would like to offer tickets for the Sandy Osawa Retrospective for almost FREE...just bring some canned food to the door as a donation to NW Harvest.

Join us for this retrospective program of the work of Makah filmaker and poet Sandra Osawa. She wrote, directed and produced the Native American Series for NBC in 1974, making her the first Native American to produce a TV series on NBC. In 1980, she formed Upstream Productions with her husband, Yasu Osawa, which is committed to reflecting Native American political issues in their films. She is best known for her films Lighting the Seventh Fire (1995) and On and Off the Res with Charlie Hill (1999).

Sandy and Yasu Osawa will be in attendance to pay homage to two legendary Native Americans, Jim Pepper and Katherine Smith.

This poetic short was inspired by Floyd Western's song of the same name.

Bentwood Box | 6 min | 1987
This enthralling short film illustrates the creation of a carved wooden box, using perfect modulations of duration and focal distance to inscribe both the act of creation, and the films act of observation, as reverential.

In the Heart of Big Mountain | 28 min | 1980
This timeless production captures an intimate portrait of the traumatic consequences of relocation on one Navajo family. Through the eyes and words of Navajo matriarch, Katherine Smith.

Pepper's Pow Wow | 53 min | 1996
A moving tribute to Jim Pepper, a contemporary Native american jazz musician who was an innovator in jazz-rock fusion as well as world music.
