Director in attendance!
Join us on February 16 for My Louisiana Love, which traces Monique Verdin's quest to find a place in her Native American community--the Houma Nation--as it reels from decades of environmental degradation. Monique must overcome the loss of her house, her father and her partner--and redefine the meaning of home.
Northwest Film Forum continues its partnership with Longhouse Media to present a monthly series showcasing emerging talents in indigenous communities. This exciting program exemplifies how Native American and indigenous filmmakers are at the forefront of the industry, successfully establishing a dialogue and creating images that are challenging and changing long-established cultural attitudes towards indigenous culture.
