AWAKE, A Dream from Standing Rock

  • Casket Arts 681 17th Avenue Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55413 United States (map)

Casket Cinema starts its season October 5th with "AWAKE, A Dream from Standing Rock", by director Josh Fox, James Spione and Myron Dewey. 

The Water Protectors at Standing Rock captured world attention through their peaceful resistance. While many may know the details, AWAKE, A Dream from Standing Rock captures the story of Native-led defiance that forever changed the fight for clean water, our environment and the future of our planet. The film is a collab­oration between Indigenous filmmakers, Director Myron Dewey, Executive Producer Doug Good Feather and environmental Oscar Nominated filmmakers Josh Fox and James Spione. It is a labor of love to support the peaceful movement of the water protectors.

Many of you will remember Josh Fox as the director of Gasland, that we featured at Casket Cinema in January 2012. Josh brings his unflinching eye and narrative to the epicenter of the conflict at Standing Rock. 

We hope you can join us for a night of solidarity and resistance!
