Miss Lead - Jan. 16-26 @ 59E59 Theaters
AMERINDA presents MISS LEAD written by Mary Kathryn Nagle (Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma), Directed by Madeline Sayet (Mohegan). Katie McCartney is 18 and sick. After just one semester away at college, she is forced to return to the family home in the Tri-State Mining District to grapple with a debilitating illness. While in the hospital, Katie meets a member of the Quapaw Tribe, who encourages her to reclaim her own Native American roots. Katie learns that her illness and her identity are inextricably woven into the soil of the land. Set in and inspired by an EPA Superfund site in the Midwest, MISS LEAD is a cautionary tale of environmental malfeasance built on the back of a broken American dream. The running time of Miss Lead is 2 hours and 10 minutes with an intermission. Miss Lead is an Equity Approved Showcase. *Member of Actors' Equity Association.
The Heart Stays
The Heart Stays, a new feature film by AMERINDA director Diane Fraher, will be in production April/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 who is supporting the film, and how you can join them.
