FILMLISTA
"Shimásáni,"
directed by Blackhorse Lowe (Navajo), 15 min., 2009. In the late 1920s on the serene Navajo reservation, Mary Jane spends her time daydreaming and tending to her family's flock of sheep. When her older sister returns from boarding school with a world geography book, she reveals new worlds that are "just over the mountain." Mary Jane must privately decide to either maintain her lifestyle or depart into the exotic unknown.

"Áile Ja Áhkku (Áile and Grandmother)," directed by Siljá Somby (Sámi), 12 min., 2015. Áile is a young girl with a special relationship with nature that only she and her grandmother know.

"Cepanvkuce Tutcenen (Three Little Boys)," directed by Sterlin Harjo (Muscogee-Creek), 12 min., 2009. In this slice-of-life, three little boys find all kinds of trouble to get into—and intimations of adulthood—when they attend church with their uncle.

"Iditsilba," directed by Elle Márja Eira (Sámi), 11 min., 2015. Majjen carries a very special hat that all the women in her tribe wear. Its shape resembles a horn, but the men representing the church think the hat has a likeness to the horn of the devil itself. So the hats must be extinguished.

"First Contact," directed by Steven Paul Judd (Kiowa-Choctaw) and Ryan Red Corn (Osage), 2 min., 2015. In this hysterical animated piece, two indigenous fellows debate whether to let strangers from across the big water come ashore.

Native Crossroads är en unik filmfestival som grundades av Joshua B. Nelson, cherokeeindian och professor vid Oklahoma University, USA. Han undervisar i engelska och tillhör fakulteten för Film and Media Studies, Native American Studies, som fokuserar på American Indian litterature and film.

Filmfestivalen i USA fokuserar på ursprungsbefolkningars internationella media. Festivalen sätter akademiker, mediaskapare och kommun- och ursprungsfolksorganisationers representanter i dialog med varandra för att förbättra diskussioner inom alla samhällsområden. Den är på samma gång underhållande, lärande och kunskapsuppbyggande. Varje år utforskas speciella temata för att fästa uppmärksamhet på områden som har betydelse för ursprungsfolk, globalt och lokalt.

Native Crossroads is a unique film festival and symposium that focuses on international Indigenous media. The event puts academics, media creators, and community and tribal organization representatives into dialogue to advance our discussions in all these fields. At once entertaining, scholarly, and educational, each year's event explores particular themes of pressing importance to Native people, globally and locally.

Dr. Joshua B. Nelson (Cherokee) is Associate Professor of English and affiliated faculty with Native American Studies, and Film & Media Studies at the University of Oklahoma, where he teaches American Indian literature and film. His book project Progressive Traditions: Identity in Cherokee Literature and Culture (University of Oklahoma Press, 2014), deconstructs the assimilated/traditional dichotomy in American Indian scholarship to explore adaptive strategies outside statist frameworks. His next project will interrogate representations of and interactions with the body in Indigenous film.
