THE EXILES chronicles a night in the life of young Native Americans who fled reservation life to roam the Bunker Hill district of Los Angeles. Outside filmmaker Kent Mackenzie crafted this narrative depiction of a real L.A. community by involving his cast in the writing and filming process, a bold choice that resulted in a gritty and poetic piece of cinema, but lost Mackenzie his chances of U.S. distribution. Now, THE EXILES: THE DELUXE EDITION returns with a wide range of bonus features and exclusive insight into the making of this unique classic.
