Academy Award-winning filmmaker Victoria Mudd will speak about Indians in film and television at Montana State University's Indian Education for All Professional Development Workshop set for noon and 3 p.m. Thursday, April 12, in the Procrastinator Theater in the Strand Union Building
The workshops are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served at both sessions.
Mudd said that since the invention of the motion picture camera, thousands of films and television shows have been made on the subject of the American Indian. In her two-hour long presentations, Mudd will intersperse clips from such films as "Stagecoach," "Little Big Man," "Dances with Wolves" and "Smoke Signals" with commentary about their historical implications.
Mudd is a graduate of Stanford University, Antioch Graduate School and the American Film Institute. She has produced a number of documentaries, most notably "Broken Rainbow," which won an Academy Award in 1985, and the acclaimed "Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion." She served as a professor of media studies at Pitzer College, and now lectures on the subject of Indians in film.
Mudd's workshops are sponsored by the Department of Native American Studies, the Diversity Awareness Office, the MSU Teaching and Learning Committee, and the Department of Education.
