Following the broadcast premiere of Buffy Sainte-Marie: Carry It On from American Masters on Tuesday, November 22 at 9pm ET on PBS, stay tuned for a sneak preview of the new season of IN THE MAKING, the documentary short film series from Firelight Media and PBS American Masters coming in spring of 2023.
In The Making is a digital series from Firelight Media and American Masters that follows emerging cultural icons – creators who bring insight and originality to their craft – on their journeys to becoming masters of their artistic disciplines. Join us for a first look at Jonathan Thunder: Good Mythology.
Filmmaker Sergio Rapu follows Anishinaabe artist Jonathan Thunder as he dives deep into the inspirations behind his surrealist paintings and animations. From the killing of an iconic American hero to critical perspectives of how indigenous people were portrayed in early children’s cartoons, Thunder’s art prompts viewers to take a critical look at our shared mythologies.
Following the sneak preview screening of Jonathan Thunder: Good Mythology, PBS American Masters will air Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio: This Is the Way We Rise, the documentary short film by Ciara Lacy from season one of IN THE MAKING. Learn more about that film here.
