A FILM BY :
Native American Artist Frank Mitchell and Anne Geyer
An Autobiographical tale, in keeping with oral tradition,
Western Civilization and acculturation.
LIVING IN TWO WORLDS
Who and What is Scrubbed White?
This short experimental film joins together the Native American Indian
history or oral traditional story telling with contemporary images, both
and representational, evoking and representing memory and thought.
It poignantly addresses while questioning issues of sociopolitical values and
ethics with underlying post modern and politically correct notions of western
thought, the PC era.
Living in two worlds, Scrubbed White's character faces the challenges and
barriers of preconceived, antiquated, and stereotypical views of Native
in contemporary Western Society, while struggling for his place, being an
educated man of color in the United States.
Striving to keep his Native American Culture, Spirituality and beliefs alive
within himself, he finds that he must keep that part of himself secretly
hidden, to survive, and in order to participate and become accepted in a Western
homogenized Scrubbed White world.
The Character is torn, confused dismayed and indeed questions his place and
existence within the larger scheme of reality.
Both provoking and enlightening, this film enrages its audience with an
educated approach, asking while not preaching to its audience to question,
and examine for themselves, WHO and What is Scrubbed White?
It is the artist's wish that the images and spirit of the film will touch the
viewer's very soul and social consciousness.
