Check out the first official trailer of Te Ata, the upcoming biography drama movie directed by Nathan Frankowski based on a script by Esther Luttrell and Jeannie Barbour and starring Q’orianka Kilcher, Graham Greene, Gil Birmingham, Brigid Brannagh, Mackenzie Astin, and Cindy Pickett:
“Te Ata (TAY’ AH-TAH) is based on the inspiring, true story of Mary Thompson Fisher, a woman who traversed cultural barriers to become one of the greatest Native American performers of all time. Born in Indian Territory, and raised on the songs and stories of her Chickasaw tribe, Te Ata’s journey to find her true calling led her through isolation, discovery, love and a stage career that culminated in performances for a United States president, European royalty and audiences across the world. Yet of all the stories she shared, none are more inspiring than her own.”
What an inspiring story, and Actress Q’orianka Kilcher is so beautiful! Never heard about Te Ata before, but I’m impatient to see the film!
