All screenings will be followed by “Through Indigenous Eyes: Indigenising Media,” a discussion and Q&A with Director Myron Dewey (Digital Smoke Signals).

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.
