Originally completed in 1961 but never released theatrically, THE EXILES is a rediscovered masterpiece that lay dormant in the archives for over 45 years. This deluxe DVD includes the film, gorgeously restored, and painstakingly re-mastered. Presented by Sherman Alexie (acclaimed author/director) and Charles Burnett (Killer of Sheep). THE EXILES chronicles one night in the lives of young Native American men and women living in the Bunker Hill district of Los Angeles. A formally wealthy neighborhood of decayed Victorian mansions and skid-row apartment buildings. Gritty, realistic and far ahead of its time made in a period when Hollywood films featured Native Americans as noble savages.
