Navajo Talking Picture

Dir. Arlene Bowman
1985, 40min

 

This groundbreaking and controversial work of Indigenous cinema charts the struggles of director Arlene Bowman as she sets out to make a documentary about her Navajo grandmother—only to find her project waylaid by the older woman’s refusal to participate. The resulting work is a complex examination of documentary ethics, representation, heritage, and cultural assimilation that continues to provoke debate.

 
Suzanne, Suzanne

Dir. Camille Billops & James Hatch
1985, 30min

 

Camille Billops turns the camera on her own family in this harrowing portrait of a young black woman processing her father’s abuse and her own drug addiction.
