"Film Series an Agent for Change"

NCDD friend Ruth Yellowhawk just sent us a story about her work putting together a film series as part of the Indigenous Issues Forum in Rapid City, South Dakota. In her story “Film Series an Agent for Change,” Kristin Donnan Standard, Journal columnist writes:

“Maybe everyone else in the area has known about the Community Cinema Series since last September, when the first film ran. Maybe everyone else has attended one of the documentaries on challenging subjects and participated in the discussion group. But for those of us who are new to the program – and are interested in fun, easy, grassroots ways to begin that seemingly insurmountable task of “making a difference” -these events are just the ticket.

Facilitated locally by the Indigenous Issues Forum (IIF), the series of documentaries currently on tap has been produced by ITVS, Independent Television Services. Each covers what IIF founding member Ruth Yellowhawk calls “marginalized, undertold stories.”
