Sundance Institute Indigenous Film Retrospective
– Fri 28 Nov

Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Sundance Institute’s Native American and Indigenous Program as Corroboree Sydney 2014 presents a major retrospective of Indigenous film. The program has been developed through Sundance Institute’s artist labs or screened at the Sundance Film Festival over the last 20 years. The week long program consists of dramatic features, documentaries and shorts by some of the most influential Native American and Indigenous filmmakers from around the world. Open air night screenings will be staged at the pop up 'Boat Shed’ cinema at Circular Quay and repeated indoors during the day at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s cinema. The program is hosted by Bird Runningwater, the director of Sundance Institute’s Native American and Indigenous program.

The program is presented in partnership with Blackfella Films, Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, Black Screen at the National Film and Sound Archive and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Friday 28 November

11.30am This May Be The Last Time Dir: Sterlin Harjo (Creek/Seminole) (2014) 95mins
In 1962, Sterlin Harjo’s grandfather disappeared mysteriously, and as the Seminole community searched for him, they sang ancient songs of faith and hope. Tracing the creation of those songs, we find that they commemorate a great time of forced removal of the Seminole people from their homeland. Along the way, we learn that this tribe’s singing style is tied to traditions that originated in Scotland, Appalachia, and the experiences of enslaved African Americans.

1.05pm Two Cars, One Night Dir: Taika Waititi (Te Whanau a Apanui) (2004) 11mins
Sometimes first love is found in the most unlikely of places, like in the carpark outside the Te Kaha pub.

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE
2.00pm Drunktown’s Finest Dir: Sydney Freeland (Navajo) (2013) 95mins
DRUNKTOWN’S FINEST follows three young Native Americans – an adopted Christian girl, a rebellious father-to-be, and a promiscuous transsexual – as they strive to escape the hardships of life on an Indian reservation.
