WINTER IN THE BLOOD

DIRECTOR: ALEX SMITH, ANDREW SMITH - MONTANA (MISSOULA, MT)

(NAR) “True to the tough, lyrical, magical spirit of James Welch’s classic novel of Native American life, this hauntingly beautiful movie follows a young Blackfoot Indian’s alcohol-fueled search for his wife, his rifle, his identity—and salvation. WINTER IN THE BLOOD portrays a world that is too often overlooked, that of modern Native American life. Using the prose of James Welch, the film takes an unflinching and realistic look at some of the troubles that this community faces through the lens of this individual.

SURVIVAL PRAYER

DIRECTOR: BENJAMIN GREENÉ - WASHINGTON (BELLINGHAM, WA)

(DOC) In the past century in Haida Gwaii (British Columbia’s Queen Charlotte Islands), commercial logging, over-fishing, and invasive species have compromised the availability of traditionally harvested foods and threatened the long-term viability of these practices. Compounding this ecological damage is the imminent extinction of the Haida language and loss of traditional knowledge. Naanii Mary Swanson, a last speaker, frames this portrait of age-old traditions at risk. Against the spectacular Pacific coastline, her ancient words set the tone for detailed views of modern life, in which the labor of survival—cutting seaweed fronds, pulling salmon from nets, plucking young spruce tips—speaks to...
