The First Nations Film and Video Festival presents Eami, directed by Marie Culerrier (Ayoreo). In Eami, the Asojá flies, the bird-god-woman who transmutes spirit. She was a tiger, she was a plant, she was a jaguar, and today she is a girl who must heal her pain. This screening is in collaboration with the Native and Indigenous Allies Committee of Chicago Public Library.
First Nations Film and Video Festival Inc. hosts two annual festivals a year (May 1-10 & Nov. 1-10) dedicated to showcasing works by Native American Directors of all skill levels and providing a venue for their works that promote Native American first-voice and self-representation in film and media. Hosted by several venues across Chicago, Illinois and beyond, the FNFVF has become a major showcase for Native American films that sometimes screen nowhere else.
