Turquoise Rose - DVD
Here is a coming-of-age story about a Navajo girl from Arizona. Raised in the suburbs of Phoenix, Turquoise attends college and is interning as a photojournalist at the local paper. She even has plans to vacation in the summer with her roommates. But all that changes in a heartbeat when her grandmother becomes ill. Suddenly Turquoise must make a decision between Rome and the Reservation. A “Rez” summer seems dismal to this urban Native who is ready to discover the world behind the lens of her camera. The road ahead seems so completely out of focus, but either way, the journey ahead is sure to be an adventure she will never forget.
Turquoise Rose was filmed on the Navajo Nation and in Gallup in 2006. It features a number of Navajo people, most without professional acting experience, in the lead parts. The title role is played by Natasha Kaye Johnson of Twin Lakes. Johnson, who has done some part-time modeling, works as a reporter for The Independent in Gallup. Gallup resident Rhonda Ray, of the Southwest Indian Foundation, portrays Turquoise Rose’s mother. The film also features Native actors and entertainers Deshava Apachee, Vincent Craig, and Ernest Tsosie III
Special features include a behind-the-scenes documentary and a commentary with director Holt Hamilton and Natasha Kaye Johnson.
