VOICES FROM THE BARRENS: NATIVE PEOPLE, BLUEBERRIES, AND SOVEREIGNTY

Railroad Square Cinema

Sunday, September 25

2:30 p.m.

FREE

Part of the "Cinema in Conversation: Food for Thought" film series, sponsored by the Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities, Voices from the Barrens is a stunning portrait of the Wabanaki and their participation in the largest wild blueberry harvest in the world. In interviews with the tribal-owned company and elders from the Canadian Wabanaki, the film documents the Passamaquoddy Tribe’s struggle to find a necessary balance between traditional work and the realities of tribal financial independence. Director Nancy Ghertner will attend for a post-film Q+A.
