US PREMIERE Folk singer-songwriter turned activist and philanthropist, Buffy Sainte-Marie’s 60-year career includes winning the first Academy Award for an Indigenous person, the first internet album, and an FBI file. Fearless and ahead of her time, a vibrant 80-year-old Buffy —aided by her fellow folk-singing icon Joni Mitchell—tells her own story as an abuse survivor, educator, and musical trailblazer. Canadian First Nation filmmaker Madison Thomas captures the power and beauty of this talented living legend in an informative, engaging piece of folk-music history. – Karen McMullen
