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.
Birds in the Earth
(Marja Helander (Sámi), 11 min)
Examining the deeper questions of the ownership of the Sami land through the ballet performances of two young dancers.
(Sky Hopinka (Ho-Chunk/Pechanga Band of Luiseño), 10 min)
Told through recollections of youth, learning, lore, and departure, this is an imagined myth for the Indian pipe plant used by the Ho-Chunk to revive those who have fainted.
(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.
