Four Sheets to the Wind is a coming-of-age drama drama written and directed by Stirlin Harjo. When Cufe Smallhill (Cody Lightening) finds his father dead from an overdose of sleeping pills, the young Native American fulfills his last wishes by burying him in the local pond and then sets out to make a new life for himself in the nearest big city, Tulsa. While staying with his older sister, Miri (Tamara Podemski), he meets her neighbour Francie (Laura Bailey). More worldly-wise than Cufe, she guides him as he explores the world outside of the reservation. The movie focuses on the lives of the Native American brother and sister, both damaged by their family, as they attempt to find stability and security in a city which is often hostile and escape their memories of the past. Both Tamara Podemski and the director were nominated for awards at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival for their work.
