TRIBUTE TO JAKE HOYUNGOWA
Flagstaff filmmaker and photogapher Jake Hoyungowa passed away in May 2019. From Munqapi, Arizona, and of Navajo and Hopi decent, much of Hoyungowa's video and photographic works focused on Indigenous rights and life on Dinétah (Diné Land-Nation) and Hopitutskwa (Hopi Land-Nation). He was the co-founder of Paper Rocket Productions along with fellow filmmakers Donavan Seschillie (Navajo) and Deidra Peaches (Navajo). Festival Co-Director Shepherd Tsosie will invite Deidra Peaches to begin words of remembrance. Remembrances will be followed by a screening of the short film The Adventures of Jake "Hepwesa" Hoyungowa, produced by Paper Rocket Productions.
FOCUS ON NAVAJO FILMMAKERS
Special Guests: Sarah Del Seronde, Stacy Howard, Blackhorse Lowe, Christopher Nataani Cegielski, Deidra Peaches
Contemporary Navajo filmmakers have increasingly been making their mark on the international film scene, telling their own stories and ushering in a new sensibility that's far from the old Hollywood stereotypes of Native Americans. Watch this collection of diverse short films from a selection of Navajo filmmakers including Flagstaff's own Christopher Nataani Cegielski and Deidra Peaches. The screenings will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers led by Red Screen co-director Shepherd Tsosie.
