The Yale Film Society is excited to invite award‐winning video
artist Sky Hopinka to campus to present a program of his short works. Mr. Hopinka is a tribal member of the Ho‐Chunk Nation and a descendent of the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians. His
elusive, “ethno‐poetic” videos journey through Indigenous lands across the U.S., engaging dense layers of testimony, folklore, and song in their unsettled exploration of homeland and
language.

Mr. Hopinka’s work has played at festivals including Sundance, Toronto International Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, and ImagineNATIVE Media + Arts Festival. His work was also part of the 2017 Whitney Biennial. He was a recipient of the Tom Berman Award for Most Promising Filmmaker at the 54th Ann Arbor Film Festival and the 2018 Sundance Art of Nonfiction Fellowship.
