We interviewed Producer Gale Anne Hurd who also executive produces “The Walking Dead” and Director of “Mankiller” Valerie Red-Horse Mohl. If you’re a Norman Reedus fan make sure to watch all the way through to see what his thoughts are about the documentary film.
Wilma Mankiller was the first female principal chief of the Cherokee Nation when she took her office in 1985. The documentary feature named after her uses archival footage and interviews to show the story of her as an activist: working with the Black Panthers, getting involved in the Alcatraz occupation movement and bringing visibility to the Cherokee Nation.
Don’t miss the last screening “Mankiller” on Sunday, October 29 at 9:15 PM at Galaxy Highland, Screen 10. For tickets you can visit the Austin Film Festival website here.
