Employee of the Month: 3 Films Starring Lily Gladstone

The Unknown Country + Lily Gladstone: Far Out There

This March, we're saluting our friend (and former coworker!) Lily Gladstone, the first Native American woman to ever be nominated for best actress at the Oscars, with three of her finest and most unforgettable performances. 

3/6 - Killers of the Flower Moon (Martin Scorsese, 2023)
3/13 - Certain Women (Kelly Reichardt, 2016) 
3/20 - The Unknown Country (Morrisa Maltz, 2022) + Lily Gladstone: Far Out There (Brooke Pepion Swaney, 2023)


Reeling from a devastating loss, Tana (Lily Gladstone) is pulled back into the world by an unexpected invitation to her cousin’s wedding. She packs up her late grandmother’s Cadillac and hits the open road, driving from her home in Minnesota to South Dakota. After reconnecting with her Oglala Lakota family, Tana sets off to retrace a surreal journey that her grandmother took decades ago, searching for the spot captured in an old family photograph. As she travels, Tana finds connection in the stories of everyday people who’ve settled down far off the main roads including Isaac (Raymond Lee), who provides a pivotal clue to understanding the lost location that could cultivate closure. A personal reverie summoned from a beguiling mix of fact and fiction, The Unknown Country is an arresting debut feature from Morrisa Maltz.


Preceded by a screening of the short documentary Lily Gladstone: Far Out There. Filmmaker Brooke Pepion Swaney profiles independent film actress Lily Gladstone as she prepares for the release of Killers of the Flower Moon. Drawing from her childhood on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana and her peripatetic life as a professional actor, Gladstone learns to stand on her own two feet in order to make her voice heard.
