2011 – 2013 Past Screenings

Redding, California – Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 7:30pm

Please join us for the U.S. premiere of Pilgrims and Tourists in the Pastures of Heaven. Russian shamans and a northern California tribe both confront massive government projects—and find common ground. The film is Episode One of the new four-part documentary series Standing on Sacred Ground, which chronicles the struggles of native people around the world facing threats to lands of spiritual, cultural, and environmental significance. The documentary tells the stories of indigenous people of the Altai Republic of Russia and the Winnemem Wintu Tribe of northern California. In the film, authors Winona LaDuke (Anishinaabe) and Barry Lopez, Chief Oren Lyons (Onondaga) and philosopher Satish Kumar provide insights on a growing global indigenous movement for human rights and environmental protection. The film is narrated by Graham Greene (Oneida) and features storyteller Tantoo Cardinal (Métis).

Winnemem Wintu Chief Caleen Sisk will attend the screening at Redding’s beautiful Cascade Theatre, 1733 Market Street in downtown Redding. Producer/Director Christopher (Toby) McLeod, who circled the globe for five years filming the four-part series, will also be on hand to take questions, along with Co-Producer Jessica Abbe, who grew up in Redding. There will be a reception to celebrate this long-awaited premiere at 6pm in the Cascade Theatre lobby. The film starts at 7:30pm.

Tickets are $35 for the reception and screening, and $12 for the film. Tickets are available at the Cascade Theatre web page for this event.

Washington, D.C. – Saturday March 23 and Sunday March 24, 2013

We are pleased to announce advance screenings of the first two films in the Standing on Sacred Ground series. Please join us for sneak previews in Washington, D.C. on Saturday March 23 and Sunday March 24 at the U.S. Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.

On opposite sides of the globe, a northern California tribe and indigenous shamans in the Russian Republic of Altai confront massive government projects—and find common ground. Pilgrims and Tourists in the Pastures of Heaven will screen at the Letelier Theater, 3251 Prospect St. in Georgetown on Saturday, March 23 at 7:00 PM.

In Profit and Loss, indigenous communities fight mining and confront viewers with the ethical consequences of consumerism. Villagers in Papua New Guinea resist forced relocation and battle a nickel mine dumping waste into the sea. In Canada, First Nations people are divided by a tar sands industry that provides economic growth but is destroying traditional hunting and fishing grounds. Profit and Loss will screen at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History’s Baird Auditorium at the intersection of 10th Street and Constitution Ave. on Sunday, March 24 at 3:30 PM.

Smithsonian Anthropologist Joshua Bell will lead a panel discussion after the screening. Producer/Director Christopher (Toby) McLeod, who circled the globe for five years filming the four-part series, will be on hand to take questions at both screenings. Co-producer Jennifer Huang and editor Marta Wohl will attend the Sunday screening of Profit and Loss.
