The BFC/A is cosponsoring the 6th Native Film Series at the IU Cinema this semester. The series kicked off last week with Andrew Okpeaha MacLean’s first feature On the Ice. As a surprise treat after the film, MacLean answered questions from the audience via videoconference. This Sunday, January 15, Melissa Bisagni of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian will present a curated selection of shorts by and about Native and Indigenous women. Taika Waititi’s New Zealand blockbuster Boy will screen on February 12. The series will wrap up on March 3 with a screening of Angela Webb’s Hearing Radmilla, a fascinating portrait of the first biracial Miss Navajo Nation.

6th Native Film Series at the IU Cinema
The Black Film Center/Archive at Indiana University was established in 1981 as the first archival repository dedicated to collecting, preserving, and making available historically and culturally significant films by and about black people. The BFC/A's primary objectives are to promote scholarship on black film and to serve as an open resource for scholars, researchers, students, and the general public; to encourage creative film activity by independent black filmmakers; and to undertake and support research on the history, impact, theory, and aesthetics of black film traditions.
