“True to the tough, lyrical, magical spirit of James Welch’s classic novel of Native American life, this hauntingly beautiful movie follows a young Blackfoot Indian’s alcohol-fueled search for his wife, his rifle, his identity—and salvation. WINTER IN THE BLOOD portrays a world that is too often overlooked, that of modern Native American life. Using the prose of James Welch, the film takes an unflinching and realistic look at some of the troubles that this community faces through the lens of this individual. It’s also a treat to see Native American actors, too often relegated to nameless parts in period dramas, portray such nuanced and complicated characters. The Smith brothers have created a truly beautiful and unique film that deserves to be seen; a creative accomplishment not only of filmmaking but of capturing this world.”—Indiewire. (105 mins.)
WINTER IN THE BLOOD screens Wednesday, April 23 at 7pm and Sunday, April 27 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is being presented as part of our ongoing Northwest Tracking series.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
