Land Back Camp: The Short Film
Kitchener, ON, Canada
Rainbow Reels Queer and Trans Film Festival
Due to the recent increase in Covid19 cases and the move towards decreasing public gathering sizes, we are changing the format of this event. This event will be held online. At 7:30pm, a link will be made available to view the 3 short films (including "Stories from Land Back Camp") from your own spaces. This will be a live viewing, not a 24 hour link. So make sure you tune in at 7:30pm. Join us on Rainbow Reels' Facebook page for a live Q&A at 8:30pm with "Stories from Land Back Camp" filmmaker Eric O'Neill and Land Back Camp organizers Amy Smoke and Shawn Johnston.

Victoria Anderson-GardnerMoontime Productions Nearly a year after meeting at the Oceti Sakowin camp during the NoDAPL resistance movement at Standing Rock, five Indigenous Water Protectors are reunited in Toronto, Ontario to share the ways in which the ‘spirit of the camp’ created a family out of their shared passion and action, ultimately transforming their lives forever. Brought together by a calling to protect the water, their experiences moved them to further elevate their voices in solidarity with the global Indigenous community. -- This is a free event.
