Given the specific nature of the 11th Annual Native Cinema Showcase,
which coincided with Indian Market and showed more than 40 films from
Native filmmakers worldwide, I was curious about exactly who would fill
the auditorium at the New Mexico History Museum. As the week progressed,
it became clear: anyone and everyone.
Captain America: The First Avenger does accurately reflect a few things from actual history. But while the United States did flirt with eugenics for a while, and Nazi Germany did try to vaporize whole populations, those scenes played out a lot less wholesomely in real life than they do as plot points in this adaptation of the Marvel Comics character’s story.
