What better way to reflect on ‘Religulous’ than our very own holy-sounding St. Francis, Aaron Chamberlin’s creation on Camelback Road just east of Central.
So, I am doing something fun this week. I am reviewing a movie that I have never seen before, ‘Babette’s Feast,’ and also talking about my recent foray into cooking at home — let’s call that ‘Chad’s Feast.’
Today’s combo pack is ‘Juno’ with Ellen Page and Michael Cera and high-end burger joint Delux.
On Monday, August 17 at 1:30pm, head over to the Heard Museum for another great film, part of the museum’s weekly Movie Mondays program.
The museum will show Our Nationhood. Canadian First Nation filmmaker and artist Alanis Obomsawin chronicles the determination and tenacity of the Listuguj Mi’gmaq people to use and manage the natural resources of their traditional lands.
If you haven’t yet, it’s time to check out Movie Mondays at the Heard Museum.
On Monday, August 10 at 1:30pm, the museum will be showing Waterbuster, a 2006 documentary chronicling the dislocation and relocation of the Mandan-Hidatsa-Arikara Nation of North Dakota due to a dam that inundated their homeland along the banks of the Missouri River. The 79-minute film is also the personal story of the director’s family, whose life choices were influenced by this powerful reshaping of the landscape.
Movie Mondays are continuing at the Heard Museum this month, beginning with a showing of Raindance in a Storm on Monday, August 3 at 1:30pm.
In 1990, the Hopi Tribe staged an unprecedented and uncharacteristic public protest against what had been Arizona’s number-one “Indian” attraction for 70 years, yet didn’t include a single Indian. Critically examined for the first time, the culture of the Smoki People organization is seen from the perspectives of those who lived it, those who witnessed it and those offended by it.
Monday is approaching and that means another ‘Movie Mondays’ event at the Heard Museum.
On Monday, July 27 and 1:30pm, the museum will show Turquoise Rose, 94-minute coming-of-age story. The film follows a Navajo college student named Turquoise Rose as she begrudgingly forgoes a trip to Europe with her friends to return to the Navajo Reservation and take care of her ailing grandmother.
Head over to the Heard Museum at 2301 N. Central Aev. this Monday for another ‘Movie Mondays’ event on July 20 at 1:30pm. This week, the museum will be featuring The Return of Navajo Boy.
The film chronicles an extraordinary chain of events, beginning with the appearance of a 1950s film reel, which leads to the return of a long lost brother to his Navajo family.
On Monday, July 13, the Heard Museum, 2301 N. Central Ave., is showing the 2002 film, Lady Warriors.
This film follows the Tuba City High School girl’s cross-country running team, the Lady Warriors, during their pursuit of an unprecedented fourth consecutive Arizona State Cross-Country Championship in 2000.
‘Movie Monday’ is continuing at the Heard museum this month, beginning with a showing of Chiefs on July 6 at 1:30pm.
This 87-minute documentary follows a team of American Indian teens from Wyoming Indian High School in the town of Ethete on the Wind River Indian Reservation as they strive to recapture the state basketball championship while battling against poverty, alcoholism, drugs and racism.
