Ohlone Short Films | Rebel Film Night: Incite/Insight | SoMa

This collection of short films document and reflect on the return of Ohlone people to their ancestral lands on the peninsula where San Francisco now sits.

You’ll hear the Ohlone’s own voices—in a sunrise healing ceremony at Yosemite Slough and in asking San Francisco city supervisors for recognition at City Hall—as well as those evoked by the land and history. Revisit an illuminating event in 2009: the projection of art and videos about the Ohlone and the Native American Occupation of Alcatraz from 1969-1971, showing some of the films created for that purpose. The story of the Ohlone will be brought right up to the present with a series of short films documenting the latest visits of the Costanoan Rumsen Carmel Ohlone as part of their 4-cycle effort of inclusion, and truth and reconciliation.

Films shown will be:

  • The Ohlone Return: Inclusion in SF and Yosemite Slough (2010);
  • 5 Shorts Projected onto Coit Tower (2011);
  • Shorts of and about Ohlone in SF (2013);
  • The OPP has invited other contributors: Hearst Ohlone (2013) Dir. Kathryn Carlson; Injunuity, an animation:
  • Wampum (2013) with Anthony Sul.

They will also showcase a work using Anthony Sul’s critique of money, prosperity, and power animated by the Injunuity team.
