The Briscoe Western Art Museum’s Native Film Series returns for its second year to showcase three award-winning movies that were directed, written, produced and/or star American Indians. The films were selected by artist and Southwest School of Art professor, Joe Harjo (Muscogee), who will lead a discussion following each screening.

2017 Native Film Series Schedule:

  • Tuesday, February 28: Four Sheets to the Wind (2007/81 min./Rated R) - His father’s suicide prompts a young Seminole man to leave his quiet life on an Oklahoma reservation for his sister’s home in Tulsa. This Sundance Festival award winner was writer/ director Sterlin Harjo’s first feature film.
  • Tuesday, March 28: Reel Injun (2009/88 min./ NR) - Filmmaker Neil Diamond examines the evolving depiction of Native Americans, tracing Hollywood’s treatment of Indians from silent film to contemporary cinema. Through clips and interviews with historians, filmmakers, and actors, Diamond explores how these portrayals have influenced the way the world understands - and misunderstands - Native peoples.
  • Tuesday, April 25: Winter in the Blood (2013/98 min./NR) - Based on James Welch’s 1974 novel, this film follows Virgil First Raise as he wakes up in a ditch to find that his wife has fled with his beloved rifle. Alongside the mysterious “Airplane Man,” he sets out on a feverish journey to find her and is forced to confront his tragic past along the way.
