In her new documentary short “What They’ve Been Taught,” director Brit Hensel explores the expressions of reciprocity in the Cherokee world, brought to life through a story told by an elder and first-language speaker.

It is the first film directed by a woman of the Cherokee Nation to be an official Sundance selection and is named by the Hollywood Reporter as one of the year’s best short docs.
