The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation (NACF) is proud to support the entirely Native American cast and crew of Missing Indigenous, as the film travels to screen in Paris, France for the Filmapalooza 2018 international film festival, competition, and celebration of filmmaking.
Missing Indigenous is a seven-minute film which personalizes the heart-wrenching epidemic of Native women going missing. It was entirely written, rehearsed, designed, filmed, edited and produced during the Portland 48 Hour Film Project, where this impressive accomplishment won “Best Film” and “Best Cintematography.” It then went on to be named an official selection of the 2017 LA Skins Film Festival.
NACF support will assist director LaRonn Katchia (Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs) and producer/actor Isaac Trimble (Lummi) as they travel to screen the film in Paris in March 2018. Isaac says that Filmapalooza “gives us the unique opportunity to not only represent the Spirit of our people and ancestors with pride in this foreign environment, but to specifically shed light on the issue of murdered and missing Indigenous women to a group of people who may otherwise have never been aware of this epidemic.”
