KISSED BY LIGHTNING

(2009) dir Shelley Niro (Mohawk) w/ Kateri Walker, Rachel White Wind Arbez, Eric Schweig [89 min; Digital]
Mavis Dogblood is a Mohawk painter from Canada, haunted by the tragic death of her husband. She paints the stories he used to tell, but she can’t come to grips with her loss. It is only after she drives to New York City for an art opening, travelling through what were her ancestors’ tribal lands, that she reconciles herself to her new life. Beautifully photographed, director Shelly Niro’s feminist film meditates on the loss of Native traditions, and the role of women in keeping them alive.
