The filmmaker's responsibility

The burden of representation

Do Native filmmakers bear a special responsibility?If the panel had a take-away message, it seemed to be that the burden of representation on Native American and indigenous filmmakers is the responsibility all filmmakers face, and that is to represent themselves and their perceptions of the world they live in.

Indigenous films are representative of who we are and where we come from, whether the content is culturally based or not.
