“A lesson in resistance … an evocative wake-up call told as a visual poem.” – Jude Dry, Indiewire
Standing Rock, North Dakota became one of the most watched places on earth. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe captured world attention through their peaceful resistance. While many may know the details, the new documentary, Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock, captures the story of Native-led defiance that forever changed how we fight for clean water, our environment and the future of our planet. The film is a collaboration between Indigenous filmmakers Myron Dewey (director), and Doug Good Feather (executive producer), and Oscar-nominated filmmakers Josh Fox and James Spione. It is a labor of love to support the peaceful movement of the water protectors. (Dir. by Myron Dewey/Josh Fox/James Spione, 2017, USA, 84 mins., Not Rated)
