Konrad Tho Fiedler’s short film RUNNING EAGLE Is A Wandering Girl’s Odyssey Of Returning Home, which shows a young girl in the snow covered plains of North Dakota living an unusual life of shooting Buffaloes in the oil patch. Other than that, she is being used for other means for the men there which provokes her to escape and make her way back to her hometown in Blackfleet Country, Montana.
RUNNING EAGLE KONRAD THỌ FIEDLER’S POWERFUL SHORT FILM SELECTED FOR THE 24TH ANNUAL RAINDANCE FILM FESTIVAL
This is Konrad Tho Fiedler’s debut as a director, and is trained as a cinematographer by the American Film Institute Conservatory. His expertise as a cinematographer are clearly visible in this short film. The manner in which he has shot the great landscapes of North Dakota, including the natural habitat of Buffaloes in the vast snow covered plains gives the viewer a great sense of being a part of it. As far as the story telling goes, there are some bits which don’t add up with each other, but that still makes sense as this is a screen adaptation of the prologue to Gwen Florio’s novel, Dakota. The director is in the process of making a full feature film out of this novel, and this short film is a sneak peek to it.
The use of the track sung by a legendary Blackfleet Warrior’s Society called Crazy Dogs gives the short film an eerie yet a very spiritual ambience to it. The song sums up the feelings of the young girl’s struggle to reach back home. The role of the main girl is played by Devery Jacobs with Heath McGough, Lily Gladstone and Craig L. Falcon in the additional cast.
