The Water Protectors at Standing Rock captured world attention through their peaceful resistance. While many may know the details, AWAKE, A Dream from Standing Rock captures the story of Native-led defiance that forever changed the fight for clean water, our environment and the future of our planet. The film is a collaboration between Indigenous filmmakers, Director Myron Dewey, Executive Producer Doug Good Feather and environmental Oscar Nominated filmmakers Josh Fox and James Spione. It is a labor of love to support the peaceful movement of the water protectors.
There is no admission fee to attend but seating is limited. All screenings will be followed by “Through Indigenous Eyes: Indigenising Media,” a discussion and Q&A with Director Myron Dewey (Digital Smoke Signals).
