Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock

In honor of Indigenous People’s’ Day, please join Magic of Cinema, House of Learning, Longhouse, and the Peninsula College Forks Campus for a special screening of Awake.  This film is the story of the Water Protectors at Standing Rock who captured world attention through their peaceful resistance.  Awake tells the story of Native-led defiance that forever changed the fight for clean water, the environment and the future of the planet.

 

Following the film will be a discussion and Q-&-A with local community members Vanessa Castle and Mark “Hammer” Charles, who traveled to Standing Rock to join the Water Protectors.
