Interesting documentary...
18 April 2001 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 4/18/2001 - 7 out of 10(Dir-Jed Riffe & Pamela Roberts): Interesting documentary about the last of a tribe of Indians originating in California. This was not only about his novelty, but also as much as possible about his character. Linda Hunt narrates and the hour long film is filled with Ishi's voice, pictures and the work of anthropologists who worked closely with him and eventually also became his friend.
