I did not nominate Trese, but 'tis a wonderful thing, and I note that you can in fact also read books 2 and 3 online! Also, 'Pumzi' is a vidder's dream, seriously.

I did nominate 'Caramel', which is a charming and lovely movie mostly about women's lives, & the cheerfully/endearingly bizarre music video for Soosan Khanoom. Much excitement!

I didn't nominate Pumzi, but agree with [personal profile] noldo that it's a vidder's dream. It's also a worldbuilder's dream (writer/director Wanuri Kahiu hopes to turn it into a full-length film, so there's room to play in!) and a fan of awesome ladies's dream.

In Arctic RPF, Kali Peary is Inuit, too. (Peary had a daughter with an Inuit name who was/is not Inuit, but Kali Peary is.)

Thank you for the clarification & correction! I've added kali Peary to the list. Apologies for not including Kali Peary in the first place.

Cheyenne and Arapaho Nation
Smoke Signals [movie trailer]

While director Chris Eyre is Cheyenne and Arapaho, writer Sherman Alexie identifies as Spokane and Coeur d'Alene, and the movie is set on the Coeur d'Alene reservation. I think at least Coeur d'Alene should probably be added.
wistfuljane: chihiro from sprited away walking toward the train station in the river (Default)

Thank you for the information and suggestion! Coeur d'Alene has been added.
