My film-watching weekend

Saturday night I attended the debut of Creative Spirit's 2008 films: The Migration, Liminality, and Edgar's Journey. Afterward I congratulated James Lujan (Taos Pueblo), the program director, on another successful year. I then interviewed Migizi Pensoneau (Ponca/Ojibwe), writer of Liminality, and Sydney Freeland (Navajo), director of The Migration.

Sunday afternoon I watched The Exiles on DVD. Wow...it was every bit as good as the reviewers have said. I have to give it a 9.0 of 10.

I'm writing articles on both these subjects for Indian Country Today. I'll link to them when they're published in a few weeks. Stay tuned, and have a happy Native American Day!
