Lost Nation: The Ioway 2&3, two new historical documentary film sequels produced by award-winning filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle, have been awarded a media grant by the Wisconsin Humanities Council through their fiscal sponsor Cultural Landscape Legacies, Inc.
"We are very grateful to the Wisconsin Humanities Council for supporting this important film about the Ioway people," said producer Tammy Rundle.
The documentary sequel continues the Ioway Native American story in 1837, where Lost Nation: The Ioway 1 left off. The two films will be released on a single DVD in November 2012. As with Ioway 1, the DVD will feature an alternative soundtrack in the endangered Ioway language.
The WHC grant will fund a portion of the cost of gathering footage of the traditional Ioway origin site near Green Bay ("Red Banks"), as well as other sites in Wisconsin with ties to the Ioway peoples.
Individuals and organizations interested in making a tax-deductible contribution to the documentary project before the end of 2011 can contact the Rundles at FourthWallFilms@aol.com.
