Reel Injun (2009/88 min./NR)

Filmmaker Neil Diamond examines the evolving depiction of Native Americans, tracing Hollywood’s treatment of Indians from silent film to contemporary cinema. Through various clips and interviews with historians, filmmakers, and actors, Diamond explores how these portrayals have influenced and shaped the way the world understands—and misunderstands—Native peoples.
