Alright ladies and gents, it is past time since I blogged about the film. In the past few months, OKBA has screened at: Festival Ciné Alter Natif in Paris, the Indigenous Film Series at the Roxy Theater in Missoula, MT, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and at the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, NM.
The last two screenings are because of the Sundance Institute. It is a great honor to be selected amongst the many wonderful and amazing Native films supported by the Sundance Institute to screen in honor of Sundance’s 20th Anniversary of its commitment to Native filmmakers.
The support of the Sundance Institute has also brought the film to audiences across the United States, through a curation of short film programming on FNX.
If you do not receive FNX through your local PBS provider, please contact them to acquire the series, and to watch OKBA on the boob tube (as my grandad used to call it).
For those of you looking for something to do in Kansas City on October 24th, head on down to the Nelson-Atkins Museum to see the film. If you want to see tipis aka lodges, head on down there, too. But just don’t expect to see them in the movie. Unless somehow subconsciously I put one in there, but I doubt it.
