Made in Native America

Made in America

This Saturday, July 8, take a break from the mainstream—and not-to-mention boring and misguided—representation of Native people and enjoy the work of Native American filmmakers at Made in Native America. For $1-$4, you can see short films "Search for the World’s Best Indian Taco," "The Blanket," "Devil's Throne," "Big Sister Rug" and the renowned feature film Drunktown’s Finest at the Albuquerque Museum from 10am-2pm. Be sure to catch the panel “Telling Our Stories through Film” with moderator James Lujan from the Institute of American Indian Arts for an insightful look at storytelling and inclusive representation.

Go Native

As part of its ongoing Hollywood Southwest: New Mexico in Film and Television exhibit, the Albuquerque Museum (2000 Mountain NW) is presenting Made in Native America, a day of screenings and discussions with Native American filmmakers. On Saturday, July 8, starting at 10am, there will be a screening of the Sydney Freeland’s New Mexico-made drama Drunktown’s Finest. Set on a desolate stretch of the Navajo Nation, this coming-of-age story looks in on the lives of three reservation-dwelling young people: an angry father-to-be, a college-bound Christian and a promiscuous transsexual. This film is not rated, but does contain mature images and content. Starting at 12:30pm, there will be a panel discussion “Telling Our Stories Through Film” moderated by James Lujan, from the Institute of American Indian Arts’ Department of Cinematic Arts and Technology. Rounding out the day, from 1 to 2pm is a selection of short films from Native filmmakers. All events are free with museum admission.
