About Us

Moonstar Productions has been in business for over fifteen years, producing documentary films on subjects that are important to us.

Three of the films we have produced:

“Arapaho Truths”, “We are the Arapaho People” and “Listening for a New Day”, are about the continuing struggle of the Northern Arapaho Elders to pass their culture to the next generation.

 “Listening for a New Day” had it’s premier at the Red Nation Film Festival in Los Angeles on November 11, 2014. The Northern Arapaho Tribe were presented with the Red Nation “Oyate” Award for the film.

The film was an Official Selection of the 2015 Durango Film Festival.

In our new film “Arapaho Truths”,  the Elders tell the children four traditional stories, using clay animation, shadow puppets, paintings, drawings and performance, the children make the stories come to life.
