As Longhouse Media is preparing for the June 3rd thru 5th, 2010 SuperFly Filmmaking Experience, we are looking for committed volunteers to help with this exciting digital media workshop and cultural event. The volunteer positions available will aid in the overall flow of the program; no media experience is necessary! If you are interested in volunteering many or just a few hours, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thank you for your committed dedication to the growth and success of Longhouse Media’s Annual SuperFly Filmmaking Experience!
On Thursday, February 18th, 21 Tulalip Heritage School Native Lens students traveled to Seattle for an educational visit. While in Seattle, the youth were able to view a screening of Longhouse Media’s March Point at the Northwest Film Forum.
The students interacted in a new environment, while learning the fundamental elements of film production. Afterwards, the participants traveled to the Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park to identify indigenous plants, labeled in the Lushootseed and English languages. These experiences gave students the opportunity to explore story telling, cultural preservation and experience Seattle! Keep a look out for future films produced by the Tulalip Heritage School youth!
Seattle Premiere of Sterlin Harjo’s “Barking Water”
Join Longhouse Media in welcoming the Seattle Premiere of “Barking Water”, with the filmmaker Sterlin Harjo in attendance on April 16th & 17th. And a continued run will be until April 22nd at Northwest Film Forum in Seattle.
Native American filmmaker Sterlin Harjo traces the impromptu journey taken by weathered, handsome couple Frankie and Irene as they visit the stations of their fractured relationship. Though their history has been frequently interrupted, they mean everything to one another, and this wise second feature affectionately travels Oklahoma’s roads, stopping now and then to reveal itself as one of American cinema’s most moving love stories-adult and unsentimental-to have appeared in a long time.
Official Selection of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival; Winner of the Worldfest Bronze Remi Award for Creative Excellence.
“Barking Water is the kind of independent film that touches the heart with its quiet rhythms and quirky characters.” -Spiritually & Practice
Take a master workshop with Sterlin Harjo on April 17th, 2010 from noon-3:00 pm! For more information please contact 206.240.5172.
