Description

Filming Survivance: A Conversation with Diane Fraher

Thursday, February 7th, 2019 at 5:00pm

Speaker: Diane Fraher (Osage/Cherokee), filmmaker and founder and director of American Indian Artists Inc. (AMERINDA)

This program will include a screening of clips from two films by acclaimed Osage/Cherokee filmmaker Diane Fraher, The Reawakening (2014) and The Heart Stays. Fraher will discuss her own work, depictions of Native American people in film and the work of indigenous people within the American film industry. The Reawakening, which follows a successful attorney as he returns to his reservation to help his people, was the first film written and directed by a Native woman and wholly produced by Native people. Her current film, The Heart Stays is the first feature film with a Native woman in the lead role.
