Drunktown’s Finest has been an official selection at film festivals all over the world since its premiere at Sundance earlier this year. The film tells the intersecting stories of three young Native Americans: Felixia, a transgender beauty queen; Luther, a struggling father-to-be; and Nizhoni, an adoptee searching for her birth parents. This is Native director and writer Sydney Freeland’s first feature film. Her talent for creating complex characters and moving plotlines impressed Robert Redford so much that he signed on to be an executive producer. Filmed in the gorgeous landscape of New Mexico, Freeland’s home state, the rich, artistic performances from the three main actors led to the film taking home the Audience and Grand Jury Awards for US Dramatic Feature at Outfest in Los Angeles.
