The film reveals an intimate portrait of an activist’s isolation and internal struggles and what it takes to make a change in a divided nation.

Tuesday, July 23 –“Bad River” (1 hr 27 minutes)

According to “The film chronicles the Wisconsin-based Bad River Band and the Band’s ongoing fight for sovereignty, which unfolds in a groundbreaking way through a series of shocking revelations, devastating losses, and a powerful legacy of defiance and resilience. This inspiring project brings us through the epic sweep of history into the present, with a David and Goliath battle over a 70-year-old pipeline on the brink of rupture into Lake Superior, the largest freshwater resource in America.”

Stay afterwards for conversations and learn how you can let your voice be heard in support of stopping Enbridge’s Line 5 Pipeline.

Tuesday, July 30 – “Cooked: Survival by Zip Code” (1 hr 22 minutes)

This film delves into the story of the worst heat disaster in U.S. history in 1995 in Chicago, when 739 residents—mostly elderly and black—died over the course of one week. The film links the deadly heat wave's devastation back to the manmade disaster of structural racism, shining a light on the issues of poverty, race, class, and education that underlie how natural disasters take lives.
SDH captions for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. Stay afterwards for conversations!
