(2018 | 74 min.)

Personal and crucial, The Blessing follows a Navajo coal miner raising his secretive daughter as a single father, struggling with his part in the irreversible destruction of their sacred mountain at the hands of America's largest coal producer. The Blessing is a feature-length documentary film, co-directed by the Emmy® Award winning filmmaking team Hunter Robert Baker and Jordan Fein.

Made with support from the International Documentary Association and the Points North Institute, and captured over the course of five years, the filmmakers join a Navajo family for some of the most deeply personal and important moments in the characters lives, from a miner enduring a life threatening injury and confronting the deep spiritual sacrifice he makes to provide for his family. To a young Navajo woman discovering her inner identity and managing the expectations of her traditional father, while playing on the mens varsity football team and being crowned homecoming queen.   

First and foremost a character-driven film, The Blessing brings the search for acceptance to broad audiences through the unprecedented and intimate access the filmmakers have been given to this under-reported social and environmental story on the Navajo Nation. 

Film programming at SAC is sponsored, in part, by Suffolk County.
