Join Green Film Fest for a free Encore Screening of Warrior Women on Tuesday, February 5 at the San Francisco Public Library.
From directors Christina King and Elizabeth Castle, this inspiring film traces the untold story of countless Native American women struggling for their people's civil rights through the figure of Lakota activist and community organizer Madonna Thunder Hawk.
Warrior Women was one of the audience top favorites at the 2018 Festival!
Meet Patricia St. Onge at the screening, local indigenous activist, non-profit leader, and adopted sister of Madonna Thunder Hawk, to talk about women's indigenous leadership in the Bay Area.
Tuesday, Feb 5 :: 6 pm
Koret Auditorium, San Francisco Public Library :: 100 Larkin St.
FREE event, no ticket required.
This event is sponsored by the Green Stacks program of SF Public Library.
This event is co-presented by the San Francisco Bay Area Women's Environmental Network. WEN's mission is to create and empower a community of women working to protect the environment.
WEN engages more than 2,000 community members whose interests range from environmental education and conservation to public policy and renewable energy and whose professions span the nonprofit, academic, public, and private sectors.
Spanning several decades, Christina D. King and Elizabeth A. Castle's documentary charts Thunder Hawk's lifelong commitment, from her early involvement in the American Indian Movement (AIM), to her pivotal role in the founding of Women of All Red Nations, to her heartening presence at Standing Rock alongside thousands protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. She passed her dedication and hunger for change to her daughter Marcy, even if that often meant feeling like comrades-in-arms more than mother and child.
(Christina King & Elizabeth Castle, USA, 2018, 67 min)
Through rare archival material—including amazing footage of AIM's occupation of Wounded Knee—and an Indigenous style of circular storytelling, Warrior Women rekindles the memories and legacy of the Red Power movement's matriarchs. ~ HotDocs
