Indigenous Science

June 2018 Issue

Science fiction, used well, is a universal tool of empowerment, an exceptional means of dissecting, analyzing, and reimagining one's reality and reclaiming one's narrative. While the same tired storylines may be recycled with ever-increasing budgets by certain louder elements of modern cinema, historically suppressed voices -- with a little imagination and a story worth telling -- often have much more to say. In this issue, films made by and about indigenous populations around the world mix history and myth, tradition and technology, cultural identity and the changing modern world.
