Sterlin Harjo

Sterlin Harjo has received much praise from the film and media arts community as a filmmaker. In 2006, he was selected as the first Native American recipient of a prestigious United States Artists Fellowship. In 2004, while working on his first feature-length film, Four Sheets to the Wind, Harjo was selected as one of the Sundance Institute’s Annenberg Film Fellows, a program that provides up-and-coming filmmakers with extensive financial and creative assistance. Aside from two feature-length films, Harjo has completed three short films—all of which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. All of his film work to date has been fictional, though he has future plans for documentary style non-fiction films.
