Where God Likes to Be

Anna and Nicolas Hudak

2014 | 71 min | Germany, US, Blackfeet Nation

New York Premiere | Directors in Attendance

Where God Likes to Be focuses on three young protagonists full of hope and promise—Andi Running Wolf, Edward Tailfeathers, and Douglas Fitzgerald—following them over the course of a summer that marks a turning point in all of their lives. Each grapples with whether to leave, pursuing opportunities far from home, or stay behind with friends and family potentially struggling with limited opportunity and marginalization. A picture emerges of the reservation as a cherished home as and connect with a country that has tried to strip them of their identity.

"The White Man pushed us to the end of the Earth. Now Mother Nature is pushing us back." —Chief Albert Naquin

The past has always been a liability for the community of Isle de Jean Charles, Louisiana. The island was settled by Native Americans fleeing the Trail of Tears. Assimilating into the surrounding Cajun French culture was a matter of survival. Now, as their land washes away and their community faces obliteration once more, reclaiming their culture and attaining federal recognition as American Indians may be the only thing that can save them.
