In 2016 Standing Rock, North Dakota became one of the most watched places on earth. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe captured world attention through their peaceful resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline, which threatens the drinking water of 18 million people and Indigenous sovereignty. While many may know the details, AWAKE: A DREAM FROM STANDING ROCK captures the story of the Native-led defiance that forever changed how we fight for clean water, our environment and the future of our planet. Directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Josh Fox (Gasland), Academy Award nominated filmmaker James Spione (Incident in New Baghdad) and Digital Smoke Signals founder Myron Dewey. Written by Floris White Bull, Josh Fox and Myron Dewey. Executive Produced by Academy Award nominated Amy Ziering (The Invisible War), Golden Globe nominated actress Shailene Woodley (Divergent, A Fault in Our Stars). Featuring music from Nahko (Nahko and the Medicine People) and Prolific the Rapper.
* Presented by the Louisiana Bucket Brigade, the discussion will also focus on our local struggle against the Bayou Bridge Pipeline. *
