At the Movies: Fancy Dance
(Director: Erica Tremblay [Seneca/Cayuga], USA, 2022, 90 mins., English and Cayuga)
Following her sister's disappearance, Jax, a Native American hustler (Lily Gladstone) kidnaps her niece Roki (Isabel Deroy-Olson) from the child's white grandparents and sets out for the state powwow in hopes of keeping what is left of their family intact. The pair hit the road and scour the backcountry to track down Roki’s mother. What begins as a search gradually turns into a far deeper investigation into the complexities and contradictions of how Indigenous women at the mercy of a failed justice system move through a colonized world.
Screening presented in conjunction with the closing night of The Americas Film Festival NY and preceded by the TAFFNY Awards Show.
First come, first served.
Venue: National Museum of the American Indian
