    One thought on “Visualities: Perspectives on Contemporary American Indian Film and Art”

    1. This isn't a good "book" so much as it is a great collection of individual essays, more akin to an issue of an academic journal than a book one would sit down and read beginning-to-end. But the essays themselves are excellent, delving into both cinematic aesthetics and a look at contemporary visual art by Native Americans. More useful as a resource for research (which is how I'm using it) than as pleasure reading, but a well-put-together volume nonetheless.
