  • Barking Water

    2008. USA. Directed by Sterlin Harjo. Native American filmmaker Sterlin Harjo traces the impromptu journey taken by weathered, handsome couple Frankie and Irene as they visit the stations of their fractured relationship. Though their history together has been frequently interrupted, they mean everything to one another, and this wise second feature affectionately travels Oklahoma's roads, stopping now and then to reveal itself as one of the most moving—yet adult and unsentimental—love stories to have appeared in a long time. Harjo, with his absorbing shooting rhythms, keen eye for landscape and drama, and two remarkable stars (Richard Ray Whitman and Casey Camp-Horinek) reinvigorates the notion of a road movie, investing the genre with profound, plangent emotion. 85 min.

In the Film exhibition New Directors/New Films 2009
