First all Native American Cast & Crew wins "Best Film", and "Cinematography" at 48 Hour Film Project Portland Oregon, for “Missing Indigenous”!
This Award winning Silent Film follows two detectives on their search for missing & murdered indigenous women.
Set in a rural reservation town, "Missing Indigenous" begins as two detectives, played by Solomon Trimble (Sam Uley of Twilight), and Isaac Trimble (Producer) investigate the homicide of a young woman marked with a killer’s deadly signature. With the assistance of Entomologist Brett Rivers, played by David Velarde (Actor), the detectives soon realize Rivers may have a lead, that would take them on a mysterious journey through the dense forests of the reservation. The detectives are soon on the trail of an elusive, faceless killer. What unfolds is a heart wrenching story of a silent epidemic; the disappearance of missing & murdered Indigenous women.
Why "Missing Indigenous" means so much to Our Team
Native American women are murdered at more than 10 times the national average, and the true number of these missing indigenous women is unknown. While many of these cases go unsolved, and are forgotten or ignored by American governments, these women are more than just statistics; they are mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunties and daughters. "Missing Indigenous" captures the truth in emotion that continues to burden the families, and communities affected by the loss of these women. Bringing an all Native cast & crew together was paramount in making the emotional connections in representing the authenticity of Native American people.
“We want to make film that accurately represents Native people, and garners the respect of the film industry” - Producer, Isaac Trimble

About the 48 Film Project (48HFP)
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which a team makes a movie - write, shoot, and edit - in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a character, prop and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in - and teams celebrate. The film is then screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends and families.
The 48HFP is the world's oldest and largest timed filmmaking competition – the granddaddy of them all. If you want the real deal, this is it. The 48HFP is all about creativity and fun. It's also about community. For years the 48HFP has been helping local creative people connect to make films. These connections go beyond filmmaking – taking part in the 48 helps people find friends, collaborators, jobs and even girlfriends & boyfriends! There are even some 48HFP married couples out there!
