The first feature created by an all-Native cast and crew, Ian Skorodin's (Choctaw) Tushka leaves an indelible mark on all who see it. Based on a true story and set in 1972, Tushka tells the story of a Native American activist, involved in the American Indian Movement, who led a rally to FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. Two days later his house was firebombed, killing his parents, his wife, their girls and an infant. Skorodin re-creates the civil unrest of the era and the brutal treatment of indigenous people by American authorities.
