Gallery 101 with partners Asinabka Film & Media Arts Festival and Arts Health Network Ottawa invite you to a FREE community screening, in unceded Algonquin territory, of:
"AWAKE, A Dream From Standing Rock"
WHEN: Thursday May 4th, 7 to 9pm
WHERE: 51B Young Street, Gallery 101
Round table with Ottawa organizations and artists who fight for the protection of our waters, TBA.
The story of Standing Rock and the Native-led #NODAPL resistance that changed the world forever.
Standing Rock was not only about one location. It remains a symbol for the many passionate fights happening across Turtle Island against fossil fuel infrastructure, racism, bigotry, police brutality, and the Blood Quantum in Canada.
"AWAKE" is a call to action in our fight for justice, equality and freedom from oppression in all forms.
ABOUT THE FILMMAKERS:
Directed in 3 chapters and a coda 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.
If you cannot make this screening date you can watch it at home!
Audiences are able to stream the film from April 22th to May 6th in exchange for a donation of a dollar or more. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Indigenous Media Fund and a Pipeline Fighters Fund, supervised by the film's creators and a council of indigenous leaders to support direct actions, indigenous filmmakers and journalists.
