Directed by PETER SPIRER and originally released in the US on June 19th, 2024


Sacheen Littlefeather remains proud that she is the first person, the first woman of color, to utilize the Academy Awards to make a political statement. Littlefeather, a 72-year-old White Mountain Apache and Yaqui elder, shared a statement from Marlon Brando that was televised round the world at the first Oscars global broadcast in 1973. As we revisit one of the most memorable and controversial moments in the history of the Academy Awards, Sacheen’s voice will finally be joined together with today’s brave women, who are determined to make their voices heard.
