Movies that Matter is the podcast going beyond basic film criticism to boldly explore a social issue affecting people's lives.

Nov 2, 2023

Justin and Nicole with special guest Rosebud Sioux tribe member Marietta discuss Killers of the Flower Moon and American Indian stories that aren't getting told. We disagree on our enjoyment of a three and a half hour movie but praise the performances. We wish the story focused more on the Osage. 

We have a wide ranging discussion on American Indian culture and history. We learn about Maria Tallchief, prima ballerina from the Osage tribe. Marietta also recommends checking out the Gathering of Nations in the spring in New Mexico. We discuss the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women, an issue that touched Marietta personally with the murder of her great niece's best friend Kyla Red Bear. We also cover the residential schools and the repatriation of american indian remains.

Marietta recommends Reservation Dogs and Dark Winds. Justin recommends Prey and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Nicole recommends going to the Renwick Gallery for the Sharing Honors and Burdens exhibit.
