From ICT, some of the best of our Native American filmography currently available
Currently three good selections for your viewing pleasure are headlining, Reservation Dogs, Dark Winds & War Pony.
Something for everybody and all generations. Dark Winds is the continuing story of Jim Chee & Lt. Joe Leaphorn of the Tony Hillerman series and the story never disappoints. First adapted to film in 1992, Dark Wind with Chee being played by Lou Diamond Phillips and since starring many notable Native American actors who have been involved throughout the history of this story. Including but not limited to Wes Studi, Adam Beach, Grahm Greene, Gary Farmer and other’s, with no disrespect not mentioned here. These adaptions of the Hillerman characters are always done with respect and from the vantage point of Native Americans.
Not wanting to show my age or undermine the other two inclusions to this story, Reservation Dogs & War Pony. These are also very finely made and entertaining selections and look forward to some break out stars from these fine young actors to represent our culture now and far into the future.
All of these contributions should be in your video library.
