Excellent film!
9 October 2006 | by mariposarosa2See all my reviews

This is a short film that was made and conceptualized in just three days time, for the Seattle International Film Festival. 49? takes a look at the origins of the Native American chant style called the 49--a cross between Native chant and Country Western music. For those of you unfamiliar with Sherman Alexie, this is a great introduction to him as a filmmaker and writer. It is, both, entertaining and poignant. For those of you who are familiar with Sherman, on the other end, his combination of biting humor and insight doesn't fall short here in the slightest way. If you have seen The Business of FancyDancing, you will recognize Gene Tagaban, one of the actors featured there, in this movie as well.
