Free Film Festival: Tales from Planet Earth

Standing Rock. Idle No More. The Landless Worker’s Movement. Across the globe, new alliances and collective actions are rising up in the struggle for the rights and sovereignty of local peoples to determine their own futures. Our 2017 festival showcases stories that inform, challenge, and inspire us to rethink relationships to land in an era when greed, corruption, and resource demands are threatening the livelihoods, sovereignty, and self-determination of communities throughout the world. The festival features 16 films and visits by activists and filmmakers working to protect indigenous rights around the world.
