Add to my calendar
 
A documentary about the evolution of the depiction of First Nations people in film, from the silent era to today. Featuring clips from hundreds of films, candid interviews with famous Native and non-Native directors, writers and actors, Reel Injun traces how the image of First Nations people in cinema have influenced the understanding and misunderstanding of their culture and history.

This is a Films & Videos program from SFPL. From feature films to youth-made videos, we’ve got something great to watch.

Join the Library's celebration honoring the voices of Indigenous and native peoples for National American Indian Heritage Month.
