Today, a lively conversation with Khayman Goodsky (Bois Forte Band of Chippewa) a Duluth filmmaker who creates films exploring Ojibwe teachings side by side with punk music. Khayman tells about how she first found her path, her love of comic books and cosplay, and how she enjoys the whole collaboration process. Khayman also shares her plans for an upcoming sequel to her short film Dream Wanderer.
We learn how the Duluth Superior Film Festival is partnering with The American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO) for a virtual Indigenous film series, kicking off in April and running through July. Each month, Khayman will host online discussions with Indigenous filmmakers, following the screenings of their films.
Khayman Goodsky offers great advice to up-and-coming artists and visual storytellers, urging them to just take those first vulnerable steps, then to keep learning as they go. Miigwech Khayman for sharing your gifts and encouragement!
