Mekko

Directed by Sterlin Harjo

Part of INDIgenesis: Indigenous Filmmakers, Past and Present

“‘Mekko’ infuses street-smart realism with Native American mysticism to create a quietly haunting portrait of fringe dwellers and castoffs.” —Hollywood Reporter

A thrilling redemption quest inflected with shades of the supernatural, Sterlin Harjo’s third feature film follows Mekko, a recent parolee who finds himself homeless on the streets of Tulsa, Oklahoma after nearly a decade of incarceration. He soon encounters Bill, a malevolent figure and the community’s supposed protector who he suspects may be a shape-shifter. 2015, US, 84 minutes.

Introduced by journalist and filmmaker Allison Herrera, who recently collaborated with Harjo on the multimedia project Invisible Nations.
