The eighth annual First Nations festival continues November 19 through 21 at the American Indian Center of Chicago, 1630 W. Wilson; Chicago Children's Museum, Navy Pier, 700 E. Grand; and Truman College, 1145 W. Wilson. Among the screenings, Rodrick Pocowatchit's Dancing on the Moon (2003, 90 min.) is a narrative about three teens on their way to a powwow who get stranded along a deserted stretch of road in Kansas. Alanis Obomsawin directed Our Nationhood (2003, 96 min.), about a Mi'gmaq community that protests commercial logging on its ancestral lands in Quebec. Rick Derby's Rocks With Wings (2002, 112 min.) tells the story of a women's basketball team overcoming differences between the members. And John Goheen's American Nizhoni (57 min.) follows three candidates--the only three candidates, in fact--competing to become Miss Navajo in 2002.
