Tonto Plays Himself
2010, 23 min., US
Director: Jacob Floyd (Creek/Cherokee)
Distributed by: Jacob Floyd - jtfloyd83@gmail.com

A young man who lives for the movies— all except Westerns—discovers he has a personal connection to them through his cousin, an actor during the 1930s, ’40s, and early ’50s. The filmmaker confronts his own anxieties about representations of Native Americans in film as he explores the amazing career of Victor Daniels, a.k.a. Chief Thundercloud.
