From the Emmy-winning filmmaking duo Jorden Fein and Hunter Baker, The Blessing follows a Navajo family in rural Arizona where the primary industry of coal mining is destroying the mountains held sacred to the community. Set over five years, we follow a family through injuries, developing identities and life changes. A coal miner grapples with raising his teenage daughter underneath the weight of his guilt for the spiritual sacrifice he makes to provide for his family. His daughter, a young woman with her own secrets, forges her own path, playing on the boy*s football team while competing for homecoming queen. The Blessing is an intimate, and ultimately uplifting, portrayal of a family within the Navajo Nation that touches upon environmental discussions as a means to inform of the effect the mining industry has had on local families.
