The Cinema Lounge
The Cinema Lounge, a film discussion group, takes place at 7:00 PM at Teaism in Penn Quarter, 400 8th St., NW in Washington, DC (closest Metro stop is Archives, also near Metro Center and Gallery Place). NOTE: We will meet in the downstairs area. You do not need to be a member of the Washington DC Film Society to attend.
The Cinema Lounge meets Monday, December 18, 2017 at 7:00pm. Our topic is "Native Americans on Film." For much of Hollywood history, Native Americans were relegated to stereotypical villain roles in Westerns. Since 1970, these depictions have evolved in films such as Little Big Man, Dances with Wolves, and, most recently, Wind River. But how far have we really come? Opportunities for Native American filmmakers are few and far between, with the exception of rarities such as Smoke Signals. Are we still seeing Native Americans through the white man's lens?
