Indigenous Film Festival - Songs My Brother Taught Me

  • Reel Pizza Cinerama 33 Kennebec Place Bar Harbor, ME, 04609 United States (map)

The Abbe Museum and Reel Pizza Cinerama are partnering to present the region’s only Indigenous Film Festival during the Abbe Museum Indian Market, May 17-20. Each evening will feature films by and about Indigenous peoples, presenting stories often overlooked in the film industry. Tickets are $8 per film and will be available at the Reel Pizza box office.

Songs My Brothers Taught Me is a compelling and complex portrait of modern day life on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. It explores the bond between a brother (John Reddy) and his younger sister (Jashaun St. John), who find themselves on separate paths to rediscovering the meaning of home. The film sensitively infiltrates isolated Indian Country to offer a rare, modern gaze keenly felt through the eyes of its magnetic non-professional lead actors, presenting a universally resonant tale.
