The screening is open to anyone to attend – just buy your ticket through the link – all ticket money will be going directly to support the film to help the film makers fund future screenings. If you are attending our AGM, the film screening is included in your AGM ticket. If you are a member or supporter, consider buying an AGM ticket for just £7.50 and attending the whole event – find out more about our AGM here.
We will also be hosting a Q&A afterwards with Twila Cassadore, one of the people featured in the film after the screening who will talk more about their story and answer questions.
About the film:
Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty, while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide.
Gather follows Nephi Craig, a chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation (Arizona), opening an indigenous café as a nutritional recovery clinic; Elsie Dubray, a young scientist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Nation (South Dakota), conducting landmark studies on bison; and the Ancestral Guard, a group of environmental activists from the Yurok Nation (Northern California), trying to save the Klamath river.
About Twila Cassadore
Twila Cassadore has been working with San Carlos Apache, White Mountain Apache, and Yavapai peoples for the past 25 years, conducting interviews with elders to bring information back into the community to address health and social problems. With the Western Apache Diet Project, Twila has documented the importance of foods like grass seeds and acorn seeds to the diets of Apaches before people were moved onto reservations and became reliant on rations, and later, commodities.
