Hostiles (2017) – Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico, to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Rosamund Pike), whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche and vicious outliers that they encounter along the way. Stars: Rosamund Pike, Christian Bale, Ben Foster, Wes Studi, Adam Beach,
Special Guest actor Wes Studi will be honored at Tribal Film Festival Showcase. The “Hostiles” star will receive the 2017 Career Achievement Award. “Wes Studi is truly a one of a kind performer,” said Tribal Film Festival Founder Celia Xavier in a statement. “In his latest cinematic film ‘Hostiles,’ he is certainly deserving of award recognition. To Wes Studi, who continues to make us proud with each performance, Tribal Film Festival presents the 2017 Career Achievement Award.”
Wes Studi’s specially created medallion is included with the Circle Cinema’s Oklahoma Walk Of Fame at the theatre’s entrance.
Tribal Film Festival plays an important part in the expression and accessibility of indigenous films with the power to inspire, motivate, or educate. Art has always been about finding those soft spots of the human condition and lifting it up in such a way that others can respond from an emotional and spiritual space. Film is one of the most powerful mediums for mass communication. By using film, we can tell those stories and share the type of narratives that shifts the perception of how the world views Indigenous people.
