A Karuk girl embarks on a journey with her tribe’s revived coming of age ceremony; exploring the connection of creative expression balanced with Cherokee tradition, language and land; a virtual reality experience that uses humor, narrative and dream-like images that demand viewers bear witness to colonialism’s legacy. Those are among the films utilizing Native filmmakers recognized at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival.
