While citizens across the country are celebrating Independence Day this weekend, hundreds of native filmmakers are commemorating a much older history. More than 40 native-themed documentaries, feature-length films and short vignettes will play on the big screen this weekend during the 2009 Monument Valley Film Festival. Subjects include everything from historic warriors to the modern search for identity.
