2016 Native Film Series: Barking Water
Presented by Briscoe Western Art Museum
April 19, 2016
The Briscoe Western Art Museum’s 2016 Native Film Series showcases three films that feature diverse Native voices, perspectives and stories. All the films are directed, written, or produced by and/or star Native Americans.
A contemporary tale of life on the reservation, an ancient Inuit legend, and a familial road movie all represent important and unique entries into both Native American and Independent cinema. The films were curated by actor and artist Michael Horse (Yaqui), who will be delivering the Briscoe Museum’s Distinguished Lecture on April 26 about the evolving role and representation of Native Americans in popular media.
Barking Water (2009/78 min./NR)
A terminally ill man hits the road with his on-again, off-again lover to see his newborn grandchild and make amends with his estranged daughter.
