Two Indians Talking tops American Indian Film Institute’s top American Indian movies

Two Indians Talking has been voted to #1 early in the first round of the American Indian Film Institute’s list of Top American Indian Movies!

The American Indian Film Institute has presented authentic, significant, and compelling films since 1975. In honor of their 40th anniversary the Institute assembled a list of 90 films that have screened at the American Indian Film Festival representing the best of American Indian cinema from 1970-2014.

Voters cast their ballots online and today Two Indians Talking reached the number one spot. Round one determines the top 40 films, which will be voted into top 20 and top 10 lists during the coming weeks.

It’s an honour to be among so many films that offer inquisitive realism, profound joy and frustration, and a strong narrative bridge to contemporary Native life-ways.
