Director of Photography: Curtis Hill.

Reviewed by James Cunningham at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.


An uncooperative ex, an argumentative landlord, and a broken door; Linda’s life is just peachy. Her daughter escapes reality through a fascination with Native Americans, subconsciously assuming her mum’s anger. 

Hailing from Melbourne, Jem Rankin is the writer-director-editor of Cherokee who graduated from the Victorian College of The Arts in 2014. But it is Hill’s cinematography that really shines in its stark simplicity. Hill is quickly gaining a reputation as a writer/director in his own right with a fresh flair on character driven, visual storytelling. He was recently featured in the Little Black Book as “an exciting Melbourne talent to watch.”

Cherokee has played at a number of festivals including the Melbourne International Film Festival  and Sydney Film Festival in 2015, and most recently Tribeca in New York.
