I do intend to watch more, but I too have cut back on movies. And Monty, I have not signed on as a reviewer.
Yes, amidst a sea of insanity in the news lately, this one ray of sunshine shone down today ...

I'm afraid this is veering off-topic but here's another ray:

Governor Wolf finally announced, after hearing from us for months, that the vacant Southport land along the Delaware River in South Philadelphia would not be used to expand the [oil] refinery, and would instead be part of a $300 million investment in Philadelphia's port. As a result of the pressure we built, Governor Wolf agreed to start moving our city away from dirty fossil fuels and toward a green economy.

Hope this one sticks - an oil train almost derailed near UPenn a couple years ago.

finally watched daughter of dawn, pretty interesting, if more historically than cinematically


Image

Image

two of the stars, white eagle and red wing, were played by quanah parker's children. his mother was cynthia ann parker, whose story was adapted into a book and later the john ford film, the searchers (that i believe monty hates :tongue: )

in more horrible political news, trump's advisors are already exploring 'privatizing' reservation land for easier drilling and mining. a big scam similar to how they lost oklahoma. haven't these people suffered enough :verymad:

25. The Return of Navajo Boy (2000)
http://navajoboy.com/
Image

An Independent Lens docu about a Navajo family who, following the reappearence of a 1950s film about them, gets reunited with their long-lost brother, who'd been taken away by missionaries. Additionally, the docu chronicles how Navajos were exploited in the uranium mining industry and the accompanying radioactive contamination of vast land areas.

Very glad to have seen this at last. When I tried some years back it turned out to be some American thing and I turned it off. This is quite spectacular.

I also saw Hunt for the Wilderpeople (central character Maori) - not sure it counts, though.

The Ante TV-series is now available in the NRK webplayer worldwide, but only subtitled in Norwegian.

I did see it when it aired in the early 80s, so I'll probably rewatch it soon

26.Another Country (2015)

'This film is about what happened to my culture when it was interrupted by your culture."


Narrated and co-written by one of Australia's living treasures, David Gulpilil, this documentary offers a scathing criticism of the vastly negative impact white society has had, and still continues to have, on Aboriginal people and culture. Throughout, Gulpilil's penetrating monologues bring understanding and valuable insight into Aboriginal society and ways of thinking. Highly recommended viewing.

Image
'In Australia, it's very, very hard for me to communicate with the federal government,' David Gulpilil says.

'All the government is doing is kicking out Aboriginal people and wanting to put in mining.'I want to put up a great wall in Arnhem Land, like in China, to stop them coming in and mining.

'Nobody is properly learning and understanding Aboriginality.
'

03. Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002)
Unlike Pocahontas, that followed both the natives and the explorers/soldiers and told both their stories, and the only villain was Governor Ratcliffe, Spirit only follow the wild horses and the natives. The blue jackets and the settlers are both slavers (in this story horses are held as slaves) and aggresive to the natives. The natives are not aggresive, just living with nature. Probably as nuanced as mainstream animation will ever get...

Hehe, sorry, but I'm afraid a Dreamworks animation about wild stallions don't quite meet the parameters of this challenge. Also, modern horses are hardly native to the Americas but were brought there by Europeans. Anyway, this challenge is about indigenous peoples, not wildlife.

(s1b) Bonki (Siljá Somby, 2014) 20 min. (39)
- this is one part based on myth, and one part treatment of Sami by norwegians.
A man in a retirement home is believed to be demented, deaf or mentally challenged as they can't get any contact with him. But they only speak norwegian to him, and he only respons to the sami language. The sami nurse is reprimanded when she discovers this.


The only problem with this short is that it's set today. This was actually the situation until quite recently so maybe it would be better off to be set in the 50s - 70s, or something.

3. The Seventh Fire (2015)

Drugs, gangs, and nothing much to do on a reservation in Minnesota. The movie follows Rob, a five-time convicted felon about to head back to prison, and his nephew Kevin, a teenager just starting down the road Rob has long followed. The narrative is slow and meandering, but ultimately I found it a rewarding experience.

An interesting curiosity indeed, though as RBG points out, more from a historical than a cinematographic point of view. Oh, and that cliff jumping test was utterly ridiculous - I can't imagine such trials took place in reality.

28. People of a Feather (2011)

Image

An interesting look at the Inuit and how the hydroelectric industry is wreaking havoc to oceanic currents and sea ice ecosystems.Traditional life is juxtaposed with modern challenges as both Inuit and eiders confront changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering New York and eastern North America.

In particular I found this nugget of information quite thought-provoking:

Hudson Bay drains over 40 percent of Canada and almost all of the freshwater passes by the Belcher Islands in the heart of Hudson Bay before it leaves through the Hudson Strait and enters the Labrador Current. And the momentum of the Labrador Current is caused by cold, salty water sinking, which in turn bring the Gulf Stream to Europe. This process drives our ocean circulation and our global climate and here we are dumping warm fresh water into it from reservoirs at the opposite time of year. We're working against the seasons of our hydrological cycle.

29. Sami Blood (2016)

An excellent film about the racist treatment of the Sami people of Sweden during the 1930s and how the after effects of this linger on to this day. The film also has beautiful cinematography.

30. The Seventh Fire (2015)

Too slow and meandering for my liking.

31. Putuparri and the Rainmakers (2015)

Image

An Indigenous documentary 10 years in the making, Putuparri won best film at the 2015 CinéfestOz festival in Western Australia. This focus of this documentary is a Wangkatjungka man Tom “Putuparri” Lawford and his family as they travel between their home in the tiny Kimberley town of Fitzroy Crossing and Kurtal in the Great Sandy Desert, where the Ngurrara people meet ritually to make rain. Lawford is shown as a man caught between his own battles with alcoholism and domestic violence and his duties as a custodian of his people’s traditional culture and ancestral lands, over which the Ngurrara are still fighting for native title.

Two thumbs up from me.
