By Blood, directed by Marcos Barbery and Sam Russell
Documentary feature; 65 minutes.
By Blood chronicles American Indians of African descent as they battle to regain their tribal citizenship. Exploring the impact of this battle, which has manifested into a broader conflict about race, identity, and the sovereign rights of indigenous people, the film demonstrates the shared emotional impact of the issue, and the rising urgency of the debate: a Native American and African American history has been overlooked, and a tribal body feels as though their sovereignty is under siege.
Oklahoma production. Tulsa Premiere.
Screening Saturday, October 17, 3:00 p.m. at Circle Cinema, preceded by the short film Course of Food.
