Series - Indigenous Showcase

A new collaboration between Sundance Institute's Indigenous Program and Art House Convergence (AHC), a North American coalition of community-based, mission-driven movie theaters, was announced by Sundance Institutes Indigenous Program Director N. Bird Runningwater (Cheyenne/Mescalero Apache) at the Toronto International Film Festival. The collaboration will bring six Indigenous short films from Sundance Institute Fellows to select AHC theaters in North America during November's annual celebration of National Native American and Alaska Native Heritage Month.

Fainting Spells
(Sky Hopinka (Ho-Chunk/Pechanga Band of Luiseño), 10 min)

Jáaji Approx.
(Sky Hopinka (Ho-Chunk/Pechanga Band of Luiseño), 8 min)

Against landscapes that the artist and his father traversed, audio of the father in the Ho-Chunk language is transcribed using the International Phonetic Alphabet, which tapers off, narrowing the distance between recorder and recordings, new and traditional, memory and song.

My Fathers Tools
(Heather Condo (Migmaq), 7 min)

Stephen continues producing traditional baskets to honor his father and thus finds peace in his studio as he connects with the man who taught him the craft.

Throat Singing in Kangirsuk

Eva and Manon practice the art of throat singing in the small village of Kangirsuk, in their native Arctic land. Interspliced with footage of the four seasons of Kangirsuk by Johnny Nassak.
