Weaving together interviews and clips from 100 years of on-screen Native life, Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond presents an engrossing portrait of how popular culture has shaped the world’s perception of First Nations people. Archival footage abounds but it is the firsthand stories from native activists and celebrities like Sacheen Littlefeather and Adam Beach that really flesh out the story. Think of it as The Celluloid Closet for the Native community and you get the idea.
