Description

Join the makers of the Emmy Award winning film DAWNLAND for a special digital screening of DAWNLAND and the online world premiere of DEAR GEORGINA. All you need is a device and good internet.

For decades, child welfare authorities have been removing Native American children from their homes to save them from being Indian. In Maine, the first official “truth and reconciliation commission” in the United States begins a historic investigation. DAWNLAND goes behind-the-scenes as this historic body grapples with difficult truths, redefines reconciliation, and charts a new course for state and tribal relations.

In DEAR GEORGINA a Passamaquoddy elder journeys into an unclear past to better understand herself and her cultural heritage.

Join filmmaker Adam Mazo, producer Tracy Rector (Choctaw/Seminole), senior adviser Christopher Newell (Passamaquoddy) and Upstander Project learning director Mishy Lesser for a Q & A moderated by Claudia Fox Tree (Arawak/Yurumein) after the films.

Learn more about the films and watch the trailer at upstanderproject.org

Note the screening begins with the 54-minute broadcast edition of DAWNLAND followed by DEAR GEORGINA.

Co-sponsored by Upstander Project, Abbe Museum, National Indian Education Association, North American Indian Center Of Boston, Cultural Survival, Facing History and Ourselves, and First Church in Jamaica Plain Unitarian Universalist.
