Native Voices Film Series » Contemporary Filmmakers featuring Missy Whiteman
Meet filmmaker Missy Whiteman (Northern Arapaho and Kickapoo) via Skype, who will present a selection of her best of Indigenous shorts including Coyote Way: Going Back Home and Time Dreams. Missy will join us in a Skype chat to discuss her films based in part on traditional cultural ways and ideas, and also about social issues today on loss and the rebirth process of healing through a redefinition of cultural identity. Many of Missy’s short films incorporate Indigenous languages, teachings, and values, and have screened for audiences ranging from intertribal to local urban venues like the Walker Art Center to national venues such as National Geographic All Roads Festival. She is a recipient of The Sundance Native Lab fellowship and Jerome Fellowship.
