    About the film:
    The award-winning documentary, "Coming to Light", tells the dramatic story of the life of Edward S. Curtis, his creation of his monumental work, and his changing views of the people he set out to document. More importantly, the film gives Indian people a voice in the discussion of Curtis images. Hopi, Navajo, Cupig, Blackfeet, Piegan, Suquamish and Kwakiutl people, many of them descended from Curtis’s photographic subjects, tell stories about the people in the photographs, and discuss the meaning of the images from their own perspectives.
