Shooting Indians: A Journey with Jeffrey Thomas
1997, 56:00 minutes, english
Spanning over a decade, from 1984 to 1996, Shooting Indians - A Journey with Jeffery Thomas is an ironic documentary journey full of quiet insights and surprising twists. Starting the film as a foreign student in 1984, Kazimi begins to unravel the hidden history of the land that he has chosen as his home.
At one level, Shooting Indians is a portrait of Jeffrey Thomas, an Iroquois photographer. The film explores the influences on his life which led him to his career. It was the work of an American photographer from the turn of the century, Edward Curtis, which forced Thomas to closely examine how Native people had been photographed in the past. Thomas views Curtis' monumental work as a "mountain which must be crossed".
