The first episode has finally arrived!
It’s finally here! The first episode of alter-NATIVE has finally dropped! The series comes from director and WOWlebrity, Billy Luther, and follows a year in the life of Native American fashion designer Bethany Yellowtail as she develops her latest collection inspired by her art, activism, and indigenous women!
We’re so excited about the show, which is airing on the Indie Lens Storycast YouTube page, but what is Storycast? It’s a free, subscription-based docuseries channel on YouTube born out of a partnership with ITVS, Independent Lens and PBS Digital Studios.
Storycast is a platform that showcases short docuseries created by indie filmmakers, and developed by ITVS, which boasts stories that reflect the funny, strange, and dynamic world we live in. Make sure you subscribe to their channel today so you don’t miss any episodes when they roll out.
According to the description, the first episode is:
“Give it up for Bethany Yellowtail, Crow and Northern Cheyenne fashion designer in L.A.! Bethany pours her traditions and heartbreak into her B.Yellowtail company, including one of her most popular pieces, the Sun Road Woman dress. Along the way she faces cultural appropriation (including having designs plagiarized for a major fashion show) and, as this docuseries will show you in a fashion, finds her own voice as both designer and political activist. For Bethany, dressing is resistance.”
So, what are you waiting for?!? Watch the first episode right here!
