Born on a reservation but raised in a mining town, Navajo filmmaker Lena Carr never took part in kinaalda, a four-day ceremony that marks the transition to womanhood; to reconnect with ancestral traditions she made this 2000 film about her 13-year-old niece’s initiation. Funded by PBS, this is earnest but oddly impersonal for an insider’s view of a family event. Details of the rite (which include baking a corn cake in an oven dug into the desert clay) are interesting, but the explication of their history and meaning is bloodless. In English and subtitled Navajo. 57 min.
