The Heart Stays
The Heart Stays, a new feature film by AMERINDA writer and director Diane Fraher, just finished principal location photography on the Osage Nation in May, 2014 and needs your support. Her first feature-length narrative film, The Reawakening, was the first feature film written and directed by a Native woman and wholly produced by Native people. The Heart Stays is a coming of age story, about a Native American girl who must choose between personal achievement and the traditional responsibilities of the old ways. Learn more about the cast, crew and who is supporting the film, and how you can join them.
This Might Be the last Time
Tracing a heartfelt journey, award-winning filmmaker Sterlin Harjo interweaves the tale of a mysterious death in 1962 with the rich history of the powerful hymns that have united Native American communities in times of worship, joy, tragedy, and hope. By investigating the stories of these songs, this illuminating film takes us on an epic tour as we travel with the power of the music through Southwest America, slavery in the deep South, and as far away as the Scottish Highlands.
