Featuring directors Adam Khalil (Ojibway) and Bayley Sweitzer in person.
A punk band is coerced into a dangerous assassination plot by a family of militant Native Americans, aided by a Rastafarian computer hacker. Empty Metal reveals a political fantasy—an alternative reality in which a group of radical misfits teeters on the edge of contemporary American politics, refusing to fall right or left. Instead, they lash out from the soul and under the radar, in an attempt to achieve what their mainstream predecessors have yet to accomplish. 2018, US, 83 minutes.
A postshow conversation will be led by Courtney Cochran (Nett Lake Band of Chippewa), a Minneapolis-based artist, filmmaker, and community organizer.
