Coming to Light: Edward S. Curtis and the North American Indians – United States, Feature Documentary, 2000, 85 minutes

Weweree pleased to partner with our colleagues at Palm Springs Art Museum for this closing film of the 2016 Native FilmFest. After a Q&A with Anne Makepeace and Guest Programmer Elizabeth Weatherford, guests were invited to view the Curtis exhibition Edward S. Curtis: One Hundred Masterworks at Palm Springs Art Museum and enjoy a reception in the museum atrium.

Coming to Light chronicles one of the iconic figures of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the masterful photographer Edward S. Curtis. Obsessed with the desire to document Native American ways of life before they disappeared, Curtis remains a controversial figure  ̶  both providing unforgettable images, and being a focal point in the ongoing debate about the impact on Native peoples of the many imaginary portrayals of them.

Director: Anne Makepeace In Attendance
