Raving about Raven Tales

Raven Tales...the reviews are in!Raven Tales blends the stately ancestral style of Native American art effortlessly with the hip, vernacular pizzazz of today. Raven, the hero, is the archetypal trickster, endowed with curiosity, persistence and daring. Raven’s video debut has been exhibited at film festivals worldwide and received over twenty prizes and multiple broadcast offers internationally. A dozen further “Raven Tales” will be rolled out in Canada on the Aboriginal People’s Television Network (APTN) next year, starting in March with “Raven and the First People,” with release on DVD to follow. Children are not the only ones in danger of getting hooked.

...the most extraordinary and delightful film at this years Smithsonian Native Cinema Showcase is the animated Raven Tales: How Raven Stole the Sun…the results are dazzling; the animals are stunning, their forms based on the totems and renderings from Native Cultures, and the colors of their dreamscape environment are natural and fresh.
