A special screening of AWAKE: A Dream from Standing Rock at Augsburg University followed by a conversation with director, digital storyteller, journalist and media activist Myron Dewey.
The film documents the story of Native-led defiance that has forever changed the fight for clean water, our environment and the future of our planet. It asks: “Are you ready to join the fight?”
Moving from summer 2016, when demonstrations over the Dakota Access Pipeline’s demolishing of sacred Native burial grounds began, to the current and disheartening pipeline status, AWAKE, A Dream from Standing Rock is a powerful visual poem in three parts that uncovers complex hidden truths with simplicity. The film is a collaboration between indigenous filmmakers Director Myron Dewey and Executive Producer Doug Good Feather; and environmental Oscar-nominated filmmakers Josh Fox and James Spione.
March 29, 2019 Reception 6:15-6:45; Screening at 7:00. Discussion will follow. Augsburg University Sateren Auditorium, 2200 Music Hall, 715 22nd Ave South, Minneapolis, MN 55454
