Winding Path

“Being an urban Indian is really complicated because you have this geographic disconnection from your land and your community.”

Jenna Murray is an Eastern Shoshone medical student at the University of Utah. Her most formative childhood experiences were spent on her family’s Wind River Indian Reservation ranch where she loved nothing more than helping her grandfather: a cowboy, teacher and tribal judge. When her active, 70 year old Papa suddenly dies of a preventable health issue, Jenna grapples with her dream of a career in tribal health while facing her own mental health crisis.

Directed by Cree filmmaker and 2019 Sundance Award Winner Alexandra Lazarowich (Fast Horse), and Oscar winning Director Ross Kauffman (Born into Brothels, ETEAM); Co-Produced by Sundance Native Lab Alum Charine Pilar Gonzales; original score by Choctaw Nation Musician Samantha Crain (Fancy Dance, Sundance 2023).
