Joanne Shenandoah as Dawn Russell
In one of the most pristine landscapes in the world, a team working to exploit oil resources of Alaska is tormented by an unseen evil. After one crew member is found dead, a disorientation slowly claims the sanity of the other members of the team as each of them succumbs to an unknown fear.
This creeping dread bursts open when a malevolent wind brings down a plane that approaches the station. Explosions and carnage wreak havoc on the team and all functions fail in the camp, forcing two of the members out into the cold on a desperate bid for survival. As these two journey to find help, they find themselves utterly alone in a world that is unraveling- either they are being stalked by an invisible herd of menacing phantoms, or they are going mad. Movie fone - Review Synopsis.
THE LAST WINTER opens in Los Angeles, continues in NYC"Far and away the scariest movie of the year - and certainly the smartest... What we don't know, what we don't want to know, what we can't figure out in time; these are the true demons stalking "The Last Winter."" Bob Strauss, L.A. DAILY NEWS"taps into a collective dread compounded by the guilt of our complicity. The scrappy, familiar banality of Fessenden's vision -- the base camp is a dump, the crew unglamorous, their mission compromised -- only amps up the visceral dread." Carina Chocano, LOS ANGELES TIMES. "elegantly restrained horror ... metaphorically resonant ... Feverishly Real, Terrifying. Larry Fessenden is among the most thoughtful Americans working on the lower-budget end of this oft-abused and mindlessly corrupted genre."Manohla Dargis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
Cast: James Legros, Larry Fessendon, Connie Britton, Joanne Shenandoah and Ron Perlman.
"BEST DOCUMENTARY"American Indian Film Institute, Nov. 10, 2007Directors: George Gage & Beth Gage74 Minutes o USA o Documentary Feature
Carrie and Mary Dann, two elderly Shoshone sisters, are engaged in a thirty-year battle for rights to their own land. The U.S. government unlawfully seized a significant parcel of Shoshone territory in 1974, beginning a battle that went to the Supreme Court and beyond, and inciting humanitarian intervention from organizations including Amnesty International and the United Nations. Directors Beth and George Gage eloquently piece together the story of the long and tireless efforts that two incredible women put toward securing indigenous rights in the United States. This is a film that reveals shocking information about crimes that continue to be committed against Native Americans.
Meet Carrie Dann and the Gages at the VIP reception.
Lori Piestewa - Hopi
(Joanne Shenandoah)"BEST MUSIC VIDEO" American Indian Film Institute, Nov 10, 2007Director: Eric Benda, Pearly Leung & Joanne Shenandoah7 Minutes o USA o Music Video
This music video was made to honor those who have served during the time of war, past and present, a tribute to the young mother and first US female soldier to die in the Iraqi war Lori Piestewa, a member of the Hopi nation.
“The song "What Are We Fighting For" was born after I watched the clips on television with soldiers sending messages back home to their loved ones and friends. I know a good number of soldiers who have sacrificed their home life here in America to make their contributions to war, and I thought about those whose love life may also have suffered. I wondered how a woman would feel who has lost her lover to war and didn't know if she would ever see him again.”
