CHINLE — It’s only March, and already 2007 looks like it will go down as a banner year for Navajo-related cinema.

First came “Milepost 398,” Shonie and Andee de la Rosa’s gripping depiction of an alcoholic struggling against fate to mend his ways.

Soon to be released is Travis Hamilton’s “Turquoise Rose,” which portrays the tension between urban and reservation lifestyles for modern Navajos.
