Who She Is 20 min Festival Version 2023


Sheila. Lela. These are the women behind the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women epidemic. Meet them. See them. Say their names. They are “Who She Is”. Who She Is (festival cut) tells the story of two women caught in the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) epidemic. By bringing these missing women to life on screen, through animation and first-person storytelling, the documentary aims to humanize the people behind the statistics. Audiences will learn each woman’s loves and losses and will come to know their story. Through these women, the documentary shines a light on the wider MMIW epidemic and gendered violence for Native women in the U.S. and beyond. In their directorial debut co-Directors, Jordan Dresser (Northern Arapaho) and Sophie Barksdale of Caldera Production collaborate with Jonathan Thunder (Red Lake Ojibwe) to bring artful watercolor animation and live action storytelling to an issue that impacts Native American communities at an epidemic level in the U.S. This film is seeking its festival premiere at the Big Sky Film Festival. Both filmmakers will be at the festival in Feb 2023 and would love the opportunity to be there to showcase their work! Contact Rose Steller Burke for more information: rose@calderaproductions.com
