Native filmmaker's work shown at Sundance Film Festival

Record Number: 

Rolo, Mark Anthony. “Native filmmaker's work shown at Sundance Film Festival.” The Circle 18.2 (28 February 1997): 9.


Interview with Lumbee filmmaker Malinda Maynor about her documentary, Real Indian (MAYN005). She affirms that making the film gave her an opportunity to work out the Indian-identity issue for herself. She acknowledges that many Indians are hesitant to discuss the film's central question, “Just what is an Indian, anyway?” She was a bit apprehensive about having the film shown at Sundance along with other Native American films because she didn't know if it was “Indian enough.” She hopes the film will “move people into my space, my definition of who we are as Native people.”
