The Alaska Native Heritage Center always puts out a nice spread at its events, and things got even better at the World Indigenous Film Festival last night. The only Alaskan entry, "The Duck-In," generated a long discussion period afterward, but the schedule plowed onward, each film offering its own brand of surprise.
Imagine seeing a documentary followed by a quirky comedy-drama short, music video, TV episode and full-featured silent film rescored by an eclectic musician composer. The pacing worked.
Hmm. Maybe more film festivals should mix things up rather than clumb films together by category for screening purposes.
