Location: Tacoma- The Grand Cinema (click for map)

Tacoma Meaningful Movies is pleased to co-present an in person screening of Powerlands with The Grand Cinema during the Tacoma Film Festival.

Powerlands stars Ivey Camille Manybeads Tso, a young Navajo filmmaker, who investigates the displacement of Indigenous people and the devastation of the environment caused by the same chemical companies that have exploited the land where she was born. She travels to the La Guajira region in rural Colombia, the Tampakan region of the Philippines, the Tehuantepec Isthmus of Mexico, and the protests at Standing Rock.

In each case, she meets Indigenous women leading the struggle against the same corporations that are causing displacement and environmental catastrophe in her own home. Inspired by these women, Ivey Camille brings home the lessons from these struggles to the Navajo Nation.

Join us for a post-screening discussion with Director Ivey Camille Manybeads Tso.
