Trailerama: Reel Injun

Filmmaker Neil Diamond takes to the road to examine the portrayal of Native Americans on film. No, not that Neil Diamond. From The Battle at Elderbush Gulch to Dances With Wolves and beyond, this documentary exposes the numerous crimes suffered by the First Nations. They include William Shatner. Among the revelations: it’s not easy to find a genuine Indian in Hollywood and Graham Greene doesn’t speak Lakota. Contributors include Clint Eastwood and Jim Jarmusch. Co-directed and co-written by Catherine Bainbridge. Visit the movie’s YouTube channel to see more examples of filmmaking at its worst.
