Angelique Midthunder

                                            Actress | Stunt | Director | Producer

Angelique is married to  David Midthunder ( Lakota Nation ) and eventhough she is not a native in blood I am pretty sure she is in her soul and together they make one of the most beautiful couple I have ever seen.

A multi talent woman, Angelique is a self taught documentary filmmaker, and a humanitarian and preservationist at heart. Her ultimate goal is to effect a change in social consciousness regarding environmental and cultural issues. She believes that education through entertainment is key to reaching the masses. A serious horse lover, her first nationally released work was the documentary she created for the Animal Planet with Walt Disney Studios, America’s First Horse.”

For that she partnered with screenwriter/producer and fellow Spanish Mustang preservationist, John Fusco to spotlight the rare Indian War Horse. Angelique followed that up by directing and producing an artistic short film “The Horse is Good” with actor/artist/activist Viggo Mortensen (LORD OF THE RINGS, HIDALGO, HISTORY OF VIOLENCE).

 Most recently, Angelique started her own production company, mostly directing and producing documentaries, and has since taken on the task of producing a series of Public Service Announcements for American Wild Horse Preservation. Her first narrative “Reservation Warparties,” broadcasts this season (2005-06) on PBS’s Emmy Award winning series “Independent Lens. Also she produced and directed the documentary “Silent thunder “ a very touching history – for more information about it here it goes a link about this work.

She has led workshops for Native youth at Project HOOP—National Gathering 2006 in Los Angeles, California and New Mexico Highlands University Digital Filmmaking Bootcamp 2007 in Las Vegas, New Mexico. She sits on the general advisory board of Return to Freedom American Wild Horse Sanctuary.

"I founded Midthunder Productions in order to create films that touch the lives and hearts of viewers. A humanitarian and conservationist at heart, I believe in education through entertainment and focus on producing films that have a higher purpose." ( Angelique Midthunder )


Besides she´s a stunning stunt woman ( words from her husband – David Midthunder ). As the stunt business is very low key I could not get all the films which she has been doubling big stars…you know, to preverse the magic that floats on the movies. But here there is a very nice video showing a little about her work.
