PHOENIX — “In Circles,” an award-winning independent film depicting life on the Gila River Indian Community, by filmmaking brothers Claude A. Jackson, Jr. and Roberto A. Jackson, is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime for free with the Prime membership.
“In Circles” began streaming on Amazon Prime in May. “We’re very excited to have our movie available on a major streaming service like Amazon Prime,” said Claude, who co-wrote and co-directed the film with his brother Roberto. Claude was also the executive producer.
“In Circles” was originally released 2015 and screened in Arizona and California to positive reviews. The film was featured in the Arizona Republic, Maricopa Monitor and on Phoenix’s NPR affiliate KJZZ 91.5 FM. “In Circles” was also showcased for several tribal communities and was featured at film festivals such as the American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco and the LA Skins Fest. “In Circles” won the “Achievement in Filmmaking” award at LA Skins.
The Jackson brothers, who are Gila River Indian Community members, are very excited that “In Circles” is now available to wider audiences. “Our film originally had a limited release, but now we can share our picture with the entire world,” said Claude.
“In Circles” is a drama about aspiring artist Isaac (Paul Molina) who moves back home to the reservation, and finds things different than when he left them. While using his art to express himself, Isaac rekindles love with an old flame (Danielle Mercado) and tries to steer his best friend (Mikhail Sundust) from the rampage of a dangerous drug dealer (Deran Martinez).
“In Circles” was made by Claude and Robert’s production company, Mile213 Productions, LLC., and features a virtually all Native cast and crew from the Gila River Indian Community, and also features original artwork and music.
