Fiscally sponsored by NYFA and funded by a NYSCA grant, the feature film Pocahontas Returns explores lost values inside our contemporary world and thematizes the search for ancient wisdom via the mise-en-abyme of hypermodern New York and neo-baroque Santa Cruz in Bolivia. The characters NATASCHA, a German-born performance artist from New York, and LEONARDO, a successful architect in Bolivia, facilitate this narrative through an interracial love story blended with Telenovela and performance art.

Taking its title from the historical, native American chief’s daughter POCAHONTAS, the film uses the title as an abstract theme, raising questions and shading light on a world that yearns for and celebrates the foreign in a time filled with the renaissance of indigenous cultures, and a new female self-consciousness. As the world quickly adapts to a future of mobility and multi-nationality, ethical and cultural questions need translation, re-evaluation and freedom to exist. The film is based on an authentic love story of two people from different cultures.
