Anyone who knows Charlie Hill's sharp comedy will appreciate this brilliant retrospective of his life and work.

 

“An Indian comedian? Isn’t that an oxymoron?” This is the kind of ridicule that Oneida performance artist Charlie Hill had to deal with when he began to live his dream, and anyone who knows his sharp comedy will appreciate this brilliant retrospective of his life and work. From early clips of performances on the “Steve Allen Show” to work with comedian Max Gail on “Indian Time” to a duet with Floyd Westerman, this is, as Vine Deloria says, “one of the best videos on an Indian subject I’ve ever seen. Not because I was in it...” Another excellent film from Sandra Sunrising Osawa (Makah) and Upstream Productions.  Ages 9 and up.
