  • Duration: 2:45
  • Country: Canada
  • Natalie of Wood remixes found footage from the '50s documentary "behind the camera" on the location of "The Searchers". Chappelle s sharp wit slices through '50s eurocentric anthropological rhetoric throwing it back at the contemporary audience with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. In one scene the voice over tells us that "...there are plenty of real Indians". Chappelle uses this video as a mirror for us to look into and feel very ugly indeed.
