Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond takes a look at the Hollywood Indian, exploring the portrayal of North American Natives through a century of cinema, examining how the myth of "the Injun" has influenced the world's understanding - and misunderstanding - of Natives. This documentary film traces the evolution of cinema's depiction of Native people from the silent film era to today, with clips from hundreds of classic and recent Hollywood movies and candid interviews. A panel discussion will take place after the film.
