Sundance Indigenous Shorts Tour &
Sundance Shorts Tour start Friday, Sept, 16!
Featuring narrative and documentary shorts, the Sundance Film Festival Indigenous Shorts Tour 2022 is a celebration of Native perseverance and an exciting look at a variety of inventive storytelling from Indigenous artists with Sundance ties. The Festival's Short Film Program has a long history of supporting and launching talented Indigenous directors including Taika Waititi, Blackhorse Lowe, Sterlin Harjo, Sky Hopinka, Caroline Monnet, and Shaandiin Tome. The program includes:
  • The Headhunter’s Daughter — Leaving her family behind, Lynn traverses the harrowing roads of the Cordilleran highlands to try her luck in the city as a country singer. Narrative.
  • Kicking the Clouds — An experimental documentary centered on a 50 year old cassette tape of a Pechanga language lesson between the director’s grandmother and great-grandmother, and contextualized by an interview with his mother in his Pacific Northwest hometown. Documentary.
  • Long Line of Ladies — A girl and her community prepare for her Ihuk, the once-dormant coming of age ceremony of the Karuk and Yurok tribes of Northern California. Documentary.
  • Maidenhood — Catalina submits to the tradition of her people to demonstrate her purity and worth as a woman to her beloved, but her body betrays her and she fails to demonstrate her chastity. Narrative.
  • The Original Shareholder Experience — An Indigenous telepresenter nearing the top of her class must contend with her career prospects and her moral credibility as she's asked to sell a genocidal product on live television.
  • ᎤᏕᏲᏅ (Udeyonv) (What They’ve Been Taught) — This film explores expressions of reciprocity in the Cherokee world, brought to life through a story told by an elder and first language speaker. Documentary.
