“Reel Injun” is an entertaining and insightful look at the portrayals of Native Americans throughout the history of Hollywood cinema. The film chronicles the journey of Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond as he travels throughout the heartland of America learning about the myths that create an understanding – or misunderstanding – of Native Americans. Seattle-based film critic, Lance Rhoades, will facilitate the discussion.
