Edward S. Curtis and the North American Indian
The award-winning film, Coming to Light, is back in this Winter Film Series by popular demand. The film tells the dramatic story of Edward S. Curtis, one of the most famous photographers of the early 1900s, who risked everything to document traditional Indian life before it disappeared.
Native descendants of Curtis’ subjects discuss the meaning of the images.
