The Walker Art Center will screen a film series in March aimed at showcasing the American Indian experience.

All directors whose work is showcased at the series — entitled “INDIgenesis: Indigenous Filmmakers, Past and Present” — are American Indian themselves, allowing the series to examine the community’s representation in filmmaking.

“The focus of the film series is to highlight Native directors,” said Missy Whiteman, the filmmaker behind “The Coyote Way: Going Back Home” — a film that was shot in Minneapolis with an entirely American Indian cast.
