The Portland EcoFilm Festival presents
Saturday, May 27 at 6:30 pm, Hollywood Theatre
Benefit screening: 100% of ticket sales donated to Chinook Indian Nation's legal fund
Presented in partnership with Tall Firs Cinema, the Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club, Columbia Riverkeeper, Greenpeace Pacific Northwest and Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and Climate Solutions.
PROMISED LAND centers on two indigenous tribes of the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook Indian Nation, as they both fight for the restoration of treaty rights still legally denied to them by the US government. The film is an exploration of the inseparability of identity and place, the ways society and government look at tribal sovereignty, and a deep look at whose land we inhabit.
Post film discussion and Q & A with Chinook Indian Nation tribal members
Film run time: 1 hr. 38 mins.
100% of ticket sales from this event will be donated to the Chinook Indian Nation's legal fund. Additional donations to their fund will be taken at our event. If you wish to make a direct, online donation to them outside of our event, please visit www.chinooknation.org/contribute.
