AWAKE

Screening of film AWAKE, A Dream from Standing Rock, with special guest, Tane Ward

Sunday, June 4, after second service, potluck at 12, film at 1pm.

AWAKE, A Dream from Standing Rock, captures the story of Native-led defiance that forever changed the fight for clean water and the future of our planet.  The documentary is a collaboration between indigenous filmmakers, Director Myron Dewey, Executive Producer Dough Good Feather, and environmental Oscar Nominated filmmakers Josh Fox (Gasland, How to Let go of the World and Learn to Love Everything Climate Can’t Change) and James Spione (Silenced, Incident in New Baghdad.) The film features emotional first-person accounts as well as gripping footage of militarized police and private security teams confronting water protectors. It also takes us behind the front lines to reveal the intimate day-to-day life of the camp community.

 

While DAPL has been approved, the fight against the pipeline continues in the courts. Meanwhile, a number of other pipeline protest camps have sprung up around the country. “The battle that began at Standing Rock is a battle for the soul of America itself, and it is far from over. This film is part of the rallying cry for indigenous sovereignty and clean water that has resonated across the globe.”  -Josh Fox

 

We are honored to have a special guest joining us for the screening, Tane Ward, Senior Organizing Manager: Beyond Coal, Environmental Justice at Sierra Club, Founder and Executive Director at Equilibrio Norte. Donations will be accepted for an indigenous organization TBD.
