Isabelle's Garden is an uplifting story of a community coming together in reciprocity, through the dreams of a young Choctaw girl and her garden.

ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

Jeffrey PalmerFilmmaker Jeffrey Palmer, Kiowa, felt that this vignette about a Choctaw girl would not just shed light on conditions in the area but also provide some insight; old traditions, it turns out, can help us create a better present and future.
