In conjunction with Arizona State Museum’s newest exhibit, Curtis Reframed: The Arizona Portfolios, the Native Eyes Film Showcase and The Loft Cinema present this special screening of the acclaimed documentary Coming to Light: Edward S. Curtis and the North American Indians, which tells the dramatic story of eminent photographer Edward S. Curtis and the creation of his monumental portfolio of Native American images. Descendants of his photographic subjects – Hopi, Navajo, Cupig, Blackfeet, Piegan, Crow, Suquamish and Kwakiutl – tell stories about the photographs, and reveal their meaning to Indian people today. Jannelle Weakly, Arizona State Museum Curator of Photographic Collections, will discuss Curtis’ work following the film. (Dir. by Anne Makepeace, 2001, USA, 85 mins., Not Rated) Digital
