DRUNKTOWN'S FINEST
Sydney Freeland
Co-sponsorship for Trans Awareness with GSA & LGBTQ Resources

Writer and director Sydney Freeland was born and raised on a Navajo reservation in Gallup, New Mexico-dubbed "Drunktown." The disconnect between her experiences and the media's portrayal of reservation life led to the 2014 Sundace success, Drunktown's Finest.

The film portrays three young Navajo - an adopted college student, a young father-to-be, and a trans woman who dreams of being a model. All strive to escape the hardships of life on a reservation.
