The debut feature film of Navajo filmmaker Sydney Freeland, Drunktown’s Finest tells the stories of three young Native Americans who live on an Indian reservation. Each one – a young father, a girl adopted into a white family, and a transgender woman – has their own obstacles to overcome and their own dreams of a bigger life outside the reservation. A transgender woman herself, Freeland tells these stories with nuance and sensitivity, offering audiences an unflinching look at life on the reservation beyond the stereotypes, granting a “delicate balancing act between heartbreaking realism and sincere optimism” (The Wrap). Drunktown’s Finest will be screened with the short film Shinaab, the story of a young Native man experiencing alienation as he struggles to feel a sense of belonging on his own people’s own land in Minneapolis.
