|September 27, 2016 - “Promised Land” - A new documentary revisits Chief Seattle’s Duwamish Tribe’s continuing struggle for justice in it's own land.|
PROMISED LAND is a social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they've long been denied. In following their story, both in our regions shared heritage and in their modern struggles for federal recognition, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty.
Along with the filmmakers, the Duwamish and Chinook tribes will be present to discuss their past and future with the community and share tribal songs with those who attend. Proceeds from the raffle and a portion of ticket sales will go to support the tribes.
Tickets ($12 general; $8 seniors/military) are available here: http://bit.ly/promisedlandfilm
Produced and directed by Vasant and Sarah Samudre Salcedo, and sponsored by 4Culture and San Francisco Film Society, this is the film's Seattle debut. Along with its Local Sightings Film Festival laurels, it is the official selection of the 12th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival, the 5th Annual Social Justice Film Festival, and other festivals.
The documentary has also been selected by the Social Justice Film Festival, Seattle 2016, Oct. 14-25. Schedule will be posted soon. http://www.socialjusticefilmfestival.org/?p=2504
