Sun, Moon and Feather

USA, 1989 (MIFF 1989)

Director: Bob Rosen, Jane Zipp

Three sisters, whose father was an American Indian, who lived their lives in down town New York and converted to Judaism are sure to present their life stories with an air of theatricality. And that is exactly what they do

They tell their stories using a vaguely disorganised song and dance routine, interspersed with family super-8 (archival) footage. That they suffered as Indians and Jews is not the point. That they learned to make their lives a simple pleasure is convincingly conveyed, as they recreate the best of their memoirs

Ingenious sets, props and contradictory ideas flourish m a healthy and endearing world of reflection and joy - (MB)
