Reel Injun Trailer (2010)
The trailer for Reel Injun.
Reel Injun is Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond’s entertaining and insightful look at the Hollywood Indian. This feature length documentary is a stunning portrayal of North American Natives through a century of cinema.
Travelling through the heartland of America, Diamond looks at how the myth of “the Injun” has influenced the world’s understanding – and misunderstanding – of Natives.
With clips from hundreds of classic and recent films, and candid interviews with celebrated Native and non-Native directors, writers, actors and activists, including Clint Eastwood, Robbie Robertson, Sacheen Littlefeather, John Trudell and Russell Means, Reel Injun traces the evolution of cinema’s depiction of Native people from the silent film era to today, only to find the future of Native cinema in the unlikeliest of places – Canada’s North.
