New Teaser “Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way” (2018)

“Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way” (2018)

The only film of its kind, a documentary produced and directed by Red Haircrow on Native stereotypes in Germany, white supremacy and the racism they and other peoples of color face on a daily basis. This is a reality often very different from the experiences of occasional visitors and performers enthralled by the “Indian Craze”, first inspired by Karl May’s series of books, on a fictional Apache chief named Winnetou. Available in 2018. Websites forgetwinnetou.com & .de.

Documentary film in English and German audio, with either English or German subtitles.
IMDb imdb.com/title/tt6494700/?ref_=rvi_tt

“That’s a Wrap!” Photos from #Documentary Finale Scene Shoot in #Berlin, Sept 30th!

A sincere thank you to everyone who came out to participate and help with filming great scenes that will be included in upcoming documentary Forget Winnetou! Going Beyond Native Stereotypes and as production extras for the DVD! It was a beautiful and sunny afternoon in Germany beside the picturesque Tegelsee in Berlin. As I am almost exclusively “behind the camera”, it was nice to finally see myself in photos, which were taken by Viveka Frost and Haven Smith, who are part of our team.

New Trailer for #Documentary “Forget Winnetou! Going Beyond Native Stereotypes in Germany” (2017)

The new trailer for “Forget Winnetou!” is here. German version will be available very soon also. This is the longer, explanatory trailer, but we will do a short teaser (50-59s), too. Thank you to all the participants and constructive feedback, and we look forward to sharing the finished documentary with everyone in December!

Intro: “What does a world look like that respects indigenous peoples, that’s working to end racism, colonialism and intersecting oppression on a global scale? A part of that is stopping stereotyping, and Native stereotypes are some of the most pervasive and recognized, but most don’t know their origins or the real harm they do.”

Coming December 2017, “Forget Winnetou! Going Beyond Native Stereotypes in Germany”. Directed & Produced by Red Haircrow, Associate Producer Timo Kiesel. Learn more at https://forgetwinnetou.com/ and http://forgetwinnetou.de/.

Red Haircrow’s March 14th Interview on Deutschlandradio Kultur on Upcoming Documentary

Here’s the direct link to listen online to the interview on Deutschlandradio’s Cultural Radioshow “Kompressor”, sharing news on Native current events and talking about directing (and currently filming) “Forget Winnetou! Going Beyond Native Stereotypes in Germany”. Our documentary is on Native stereotypes in Germany, racism and colonialism, of which the 19th century created but still popular pseudo “Indian” Winnetou is the ultimate symbol. At the webpage, interview in German is at the top. To listen in English, the link is at the end of the article.

Please also visit our film website, follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, and help support our bringing it to the world. Our funding campaign is still live on IndieGoGo. Both my co-director Timo Kiesel and I are available for interview. Very welcome to share the links, thanks!
