Synopsis: “Becoming” explores the connection of Orlando’s contemporary designs with his traditional Navajo upbringing, the honoring of Native women, especially his grandmothers. It challenges the notion that Native art must be fixed in time, and shows how weaving the past into the present can be a powerful form of cultural expression.

Director's Bio

Kaela Waldstein grew up around fine craftsmanship in the diverse city of San Francisco and applies the talents she has developed over the course of her life to the craft of filmmaking. An early fascination with the art of storytelling inspired her to teach herself how to write (once upon a time = oassaponatim). At San Francisco School of the Arts High School, she studied visual arts and gained a refined sense of color, balance, space. However, it was a social documentation class that Kaela took while studying Sociology at UC Santa Cruz that triggered an interest in human-centered video storytelling. Now living and working in Santa Fe, New Mexico, she brings her exceptional communication skills, keen visual sense and sensitivity to the art of video production. Kaela is also an FAA certified drone pilot.
