Ballad of Crowfoot

param name="movie" value=""><

This film The Ballad of Crowfoot was written, directed and performed by Willie Dunn and produced by Barrie Howells in 1968 for the National Film Board of Canada.

This is not simply an artistically brilliant work, but it features a collection of some of Canada's earliest historical photographs. Many of the photographs of Chief Crowfoot and his braves are artistically powerful.

The film is a little more then 10 minutes long. Viewers are advised to turn off the playlist music at the bottom of this blog for your listening pleasure.
