Sacred Water and Red Power: A Film Screening on #NODAPL and Standing Rock
Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 6:00 pm
Bob and Sheila Hoerle Lecture Hall, Room UL105, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003
Please join us for a film screening of Sacred Water and Red Power, two episodes from Viceland’s new series RISE that powerfully document and critically explore the political struggle at Standing Rock against the Dakota Access Pipeline. These films present incredible portraits of the leaders of the #NODAPL movement, contextualize the current struggle against the fossil fuel industry within Sioux history and politics, highlight ongoing state violence against Indigenous peoples in the United States, and raise fundamental questions about the role of Indigenous social movements in shaping our collective future. These are essential films for our time.
Film screening followed by discussion and Q & A with:
Michelle Latimer, RISE Director
Mia White, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, The New School
Elizabeth Ellis (Peoria), Penn Barra Post-Doctoral Fellow, University of Pennsylvania
