Rez Metal

Available to view 12 am on June 23 through 12 am on June 25.


Directed by Ashkan Soltani (USA, 2021, 76 min.) Digital.

Kyle Felter, lead singer of the Navajo heavy metal band I Don't Konform, sent a demo tape to Flemming Rasmussen, the Grammy Award–winning producer of several Metallica albums, including Master of Puppets. A few months later, Rasmussen, captivated by the music, flew from Denmark to Window Rock, Arizona, to meet the band. Through a series of vivid images and interviews focused on the venues, bands, and fans of the Navajo Nation metal scene, Rez Metal provides a window into the fascinating world of Indigenous heavy metal.

Co-sponsored by the City of Albuquerque.
