In Production

A rapid montage about the situation of Aboriginal people in North America through the figure of Crowfoot, the legendary Blackfoot leader of the Plains.


This is one of the earliest ‘music video’ to our knowledge, and certainly the first to use music and song to highlight the plight and endurance of the indigenous peoples of North America. A stunning short that should be playing round the clock on ever music video channel.
