N. Scott Momaday: Words From A Bear

1 Hr. 25 Min.
Not Rated
Screening format: DCP

Part of our Native American Heritage Month film series, presented by

Pulitzer Prize-winner Navarro Scott Momaday is one of history’s most celebrated Native American authors, and his work explores how our collective origins connect and inform us. From his years at Stanford to his work in the Native American Renaissance, Words From a Bear works as both a biography and as a stunning tone poem that breathes visual life into Momaday’s words, through both evocative photography of the Great Plains and storybook-like animations of his poetry.
