Through The Lens: 'Scenes From The Glittering World'

Jun 25, 2021

Filmed at the most remote high school in the continental U.S., the new documentary Scenes from the Glittering World follows three young people as they come of age in the Navajo Nation. 

Granite, Ilii and Noah all have dreams they hope to someday make a reality. In a series of vignettes, the documentary chronicles their daily lives as they balance their family responsibilities with their personal ambitions, all the while navigating the realities of attending a small, isolated school with limited resources and an uncertain future. Join us Friday at 11 a.m. as we talk with director Jared Jakins and producer Roni Jo Draper about their documentary.
