Tonto Plays Himself
A young man who lives for the movies— all except Westerns—discovers he has a personal connection to them through his cousin, an actor during the 1930s, ’40s, and early ’50s. The filmmaker confronts his own anxieties about representations of Native Americans in film as he explores
the amazing career of Victor Daniels,
a.k.a. Chief Thundercloud.
