(Sun­dance Hd, astro Ch 438, 10pm) Ster­lin Harjo’s grand­fa­ther dis­ap­peared mys­te­ri­ously in Sasakwa, Ok­la­homa, in 1962. While the Semi­nole com­mu­nity searched for him, its mem­bers sang an­cient songs of faith and hope. This is film­maker Harjo’s first fea­ture-length doc­u­men­tary and it ex­plores both his grand­fa­ther’s dis­ap­pear­ance and the ori­gins of these songs. it con­tains in­ter­views with or­di­nary people as well as the keep­ers of the faith in his tribe. Harjo traces the cre­ation of these tribal songs, which com­mem­o­rate the great up­heaval of the past when uS pol­icy forced them to be re­lo­cated from their home­land.
