Femmes & Friends Cinema School: Drunktown’s Finest

For the second session of Femmes & Friends Cinema School, we’re screening Drunktown’s Finest, a film directed by Sydney Freeland. Drunktown’s Finest  is a coming-of-age story about three individuals growing up on the Navajo reservation, and the particular struggles and obstacles they face as Indigenous youth trying to navigate beyond their hardships.  Freeland’s debut feature weaves together the three separate stories in a way that has been praised as honest and optimistic despite its blunt look at life in a small town U.S.A. with little opportunity.
