A contemporary drama of suspense, Older Than America delves into the lasting impact of the cultural genocide that occurred at Indian boarding schools across the U.S. and Canada.'
I finally managed to get hold of a copy of Georgina Lightning’s film ‘Older Than America’. Yay! Amazon US wouldn’t ship the DVD to Australia for some strange reason and Amazon UK did not sell it – until recently.
Anyway, Linda and I settled down to watch it last night and we thoroughly enjoyed the film. It is well worth a watch and focuses on some very important themes.
I suspect that few people in the US and further afield know the full story of the boarding schools and what happened to Native American children and their families. The US government has never apologised for this cultural genocide.
Now, here is some great news! A copy of Georgina’s film is currently available on YouTube (see below). Why not put your feet up and watch it?
