Kent Mackenzie’s groundbreaking 1961 film “The Exiles” tells the story of young American Indians in Los Angeles as they spend a night barhopping, drinking, and flirting. It’s recently been restored and released by Milestone films, and opens on July 11 at IFC Center. Joining Leonard to talk about the film’s impact are Milestone co-founder Dennis Doros, filmmaker Charles Burnett (“Killer of Sheep”), and American Indian author Sherman Alexie.
