Friday, June 5, 7:00 pm MOVIE NIGHT
Two films on the Native American experience in Los Angeles. First, a rare opportunity to see Kent Mackenzie’s THE EXILES (72mins), a 1961 film about young Native Americans living in L.A.’s Bunker Hill district. This will be followed by a short film by Pamela J. Peters, LEGACY OF EXILED NDNZ (11mins), which documents the lives of young Native Americans currently living in Los Angeles. Post-screening, Ms. Peters and Skid Row advocate Kevin Michael Key will engage the audience in conversation on issues such as possible similarities between the Bureau of Indian Affairs controversial Urban Relocation Program and current gentrification efforts in Skid Row.
