Northwest Tracking: MAKOSHIKA


Taking its title from the Lakota name “Mako Shika,” meaning “bad land,” MAKOSHIKA focuses on the lonely prairie landscapes of eastern Montana, where graduating classes of local one-room schoolhouses can often be composed of only a single student. First-time feature director Hart weaves alternating first-person narratives together with engrossing historical commentary to tell the story of a region in transition, largely due to oil development fueled by the nearby Bakken shale formations. Like the prospectors of years past, modern-day fortune hunters are making their way into these remote lands…while holding the fates of local communities in the balance. (65 mins.) 

Jessica Jane Hart and Fractured Media will introduce the film.


MAKOSHIKA screens Thursday, January 14 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located inside the Portland Art Museum).  The program is being presented as part of our ongoing Northwest Tracking series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
