STANDING ROCK, TAKE ME FROM THE RIVER
For many citizens a line had been crossed inspiring thousands from across the political spectrum traveling to Standing Rock and joining the resistance to Dakota Access Pipeline. This story follows the experience of a few of those citizens from Milwaukee, Wisconsin with members of the Overpass Light Brigade and Michael Bootzin making for this “brew city” journey into water protecting.
In the Spring of 2016, the call went out, no one would have guessed that by November the camp would grow and the movement would gain so much support around the world. This is largely because of the independent media, without them the world would not have had the opportunity to participate and the brutality of the militarized police may have only been known to those fighting on the front lines. This film is a glimpse into our future. Over 850 citizens were arrested during this resistance to protect the water. The fight is not over, the sacred fire has been kicked out, but the embers have traveled the world and are again ablaze! Today water protectors can be found in cities everywhere including Water Protectors of Milwaukee as Native Americans lead the important challenges to protect our environment.
Michael Bootzin will be our special guest and he will discuss what it was like to be part of this event.
A short film written and directed by Maurice Jovan based upon his Graphic Comic story. Maurice will be on hand to answer any questions.
