“Film has become the Indigenous language of the First Nations people of Turtle Island and is our way of re-creating our history and truths.” —Missy Whiteman, guest curator
INDIgenesis: GEN2 returns to the Walker Cinema with Native/Indigenous films that speak to future generations, guest curated by filmmaker Missy Whiteman (Northern Arapaho and Kickapoo Nations). Through moving image, Native filmmakers look to the past, present, and future to convey truths about our histories and reconnect to Indigenous languages, land, and ways of life.
The four-week series showcases area premieres of narrative and documentary features as well as short films by Indigenous filmmakers, discussions and presentations by special guests, and a free youth-focused program.
