YOUTH V GOV
MONTANA PREMIERE - Twenty-one courageous youth lead a groundbreaking lawsuit against the U.S. government, asserting it has willfully acted over six decades to create our climate crisis, thus endangering their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property. If these young people are successful, they’ll not only make history, they’ll change the future.
Closing Weekend Film
Manzanar, Diverted: When Water Becomes Dust
WORLD PREMIERE - A poetic story that travels from the snow-capped Sierras to the parched valley of Payahuunadü (“the land of flowing water”), weaving together memories of an intergenerational group of women from three communities who hold in common an ancestral connection to the water that trickles through deep fissures in the land. Native Americans, former Japanese-American WWII prisoners and environmentalists form an unexpected alliance to defend their water, their history, and their culture, from Los Angeles.
