Product Notes

An entertaining and provocative look at Hollywood's depiction of Native Americans, Reel Injun journeys through a century of cinema to set the record straight. Traveling through the heartland of the U.S., to the Black Hills and Monument Valley, Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond examines how the myth of the movie 'Injun' has influenced the world's understanding - and misunderstanding - of Natives. With clips from hundreds of classic and recent films, it is a remarkable feat of historical research, documenting the shift from nuanced silent-era heroes to the Western's 'Noble savage' stereotype, leading up to the bourgeoning Native independent scene of Smoke Signals and the Fast Runner. Containing candid interviews with celebrated directors, writers, actors and activists, including Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby), Robbie Robertson (The Last Waltz), Sacheen Littlefeather, John Trudell, and Russell Means, Reel Injun is an insightful and essential compendium for understanding the racial politics of Hollywood and the continuing artistic vibrancy of Native peoples.
