Some of his short films are funny as hell.

I had the pleasure of working side by side with a Navajo woman who was very amenable to talking about her life and traditions. I think it began with my genuine curiosity as an eclipse approached. One of my favorite conversations was her scaring me witless in broad daylight regarding Skinwalkers. She ended the conversation with (paraphrased) 'I can give you directions to a place that is believed to be very active for these things.' I took a hard pass on that because just thinking about knowing it scared me.

That looks/sounds fantastic. I hope it gets some wider distribution somehow.

/odd twist:  Navajo legends features the Hero Twins.  Or as Western astronomers know them, Castor and Pollux, in the winter sky.

I have a hard time with the skinwalker issue.  The native peoples believe in these things so deeply, but to me it's like vampires or werewolves.

It must be terrifying to fully believe that such things exist.

You'd best start believing in skin-walker stories, Mr. Sabbath...

Fark-walkers!

This sounds like a skinwalker.

Sounds awesome.

Would like to see it, but dudes need to work on their marketing.  No website, nothing on the Director's twitter since 2018...

Literally wouldn't have heard of it if it weren't for Fark, which is never a position you want to be in.

I used to work at the hospital in Tuba City.  We had a converted RV that served as a mobile dental clinic, and we would park in the shopping center where that theater is located.  It's a dump.  The meat department at Basha's looked like it was serving roadkill.  Pizza Edge was pretty good though.
I miss my Navajo patients.  Most of them seemed to appreciate everything we did even though they called us "bilagáana"

I accidently had to camp on a Two Spirit Navajo's land once, when like an idiot, I tried to camp at Chaco Canyon on a 4th of July weekend without a reservation. (I just remember the "Two Spirit" Cheyenne designation from the movie "Little Big Man;" have no idea if Navajos utilize the term.)

He pulled up and told me we were on his property, but he allowed us to stay the night. After helping me drink all of my beer, George got a little too friendly, as I don't swing that way, but nevertheless, before he went home he invited me to attend a peyote ceremony sometime at his hogan. He explained it was easy to find, as it was the only pink one along the highway.

Yup, though I never figured out where he got that name.

I am willing to spend money to see this movie.

Independent movie theatre in Seattle. I'll ask if they can get it. Looks awesome!

I don't know if "believe" can be used. Such things are part and parcel of our tribal lives. We know these things exist, if that's any difference.

Native legends are really cool. But the scary stories will make you pee someone else's pants.
