Description
Winner of the filmmaker's trophy at the Sundance Festival and nominated for three Independent Spirit awards (Best First Feature, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography), this 1989 road movie juxtaposes two Cheyenne men traveling from their reservation in Montana to New Mexico. Needing to help his sister get out of jail, Buddy Red Bow (A Martinez) hitches a ride with Philbert Bono (Gary Farmer), who is making a meandering spiritual journey in his 1964 Buick, nicknamed "Protector."

"A pretty irresistible movie."—LATimes

"What 'Powwow Highway' does best is to create two unforgettable characters and give them some time together. It places them within a large network of their Indian friends so we get a sense of the way their community still shares and thrives. As Philbert points Protector east instead of south, as he visits friends and sacred Indian places along the road, he doesn't try to justify what he's doing. It comes from inside. And it comes, we sense, from a very old Indian way of looking at things. Buddy is much more modern and impatient—he's Type A—but as their journey unfolds, he can begin to see the sense of it.... One of the reasons we go to movies is to meet people we have not met before. It will be a long time before I forget Farmer, who disappears into the Philbert role so completely we almost think he is this simple, openhearted man—until we learn he's an actor and teacher from near Toronto."—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
