Filmmaker Magazine - Revisiting History at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival

Sante Fe has archeological sites that date back 13,000 years. As we drove to my hotel from the Albuquerque airport, almost an hour-long trek at midnight, my driver told me about the history of the city, rooted in Native American culture, that I had no idea dated that far back. "History doesn't repeat itself but it often rhymes," Mark Twain supposedly said. After spending a weekend at the Sante Fe Independent Film Festival, the thought felt applicable -- the lineup of films demonstrated the cynical nature of oppression, struggle and minority battles that indeed continue in familiar patterns.
