Sun Kissed (2012)

(h/t Dulce Vita)

This is...there are no words.
When a Navajo couple discovers their children have a disorder that makes exposure to sunlight fatal, they also learn their reservation is a hotbed for this rare genetic disease. Why? Sun Kissed follows Dorey and Yolanda Nez as they confront cultural taboos, tribal history and their own unconventional choices to learn the shocking truth: The consequences of the Navajos' Long Walk — their forced relocation by the U.S. military in 1864 — are far from over. A co-production of ITVS, with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. A co-presentation with Native American Public Telecommunications.


  1. I went and watched the whole thing on the PBS website. Very interesting documentary that shows how one event can truly affect history forever and the lives of the people that survive as well as everyone descended from them. Great story.

    1. You were able to watch the 53 min documentary? How did you do that? Maybe it's my country that is not allowed, but they didn't say so, the video only said the "requested video is not available, we apologize for the inconvenience".

    2. I went to www.pbs.org/pov and on the right side, the sun kissed film is showcased, and you can click watch now. If this doesn't work, it may be because of what you said about you being in a different country.

    3. I did exactly that, but the video was blanked with the message on it. It didn't work (I tried 3 times), so I think yeah, they didn't allow some foreign countries to view it... :((

      I really appreciate the project though I didn't see the documentary, but I can view the whole interviews and I watched one. Really sad what the Navajos went through.
