We are honored to screen this newly released film, telling the story of the#NODAPL Native-led resistance against the construction of the $3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline under the Missouri River at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

Awake, A Dream From Standing Rock is a feature-length documentary directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker and activist Josh Fox (Gasland, How To Let Go Of The World And Learn To Love Everything Climate Can’t Change), Academy Award nominated filmmaker James Spione (Incident In New Baghdad) and indigenous filmmaker and Digital Smoke Signals founder Myron Dewey.

From the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, we can learn a deep mode of engagement with the world. One that reminds us that we do not have to act alone as individuals, but rather, can find our strength as a collective of ecological beings in cahoots with the larger breathing world.

First, join us for the Planetary Dance movement ritual on Saturday, July 29, where we dedicate our art and our dance to benefit the waters of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. Then, widen the frame of perception to include all water, and those who protect the most vulnerable parts of our world, both human and elemental.

Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock will deepen and inspire our sense of stewardship, and give context to our practices throughout this year’s Life.Art.Being festival.

Proceeds to benefit Indigenous Media Fund and Pipeline Fighers Fund.
