NIWOT NATIVE AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL


Friday, April 6th -  7:30pm-9:30pm
Located at Elysian Fields Auctions
6924 79th Street, Niwot  (Look for the signs!)
Festival is free – Donations accepted!
Film Festival Director Ava Hamilton (Arapaho filmmaker) will introduce the film.  
Poison Wind tells the story of unconscionable greed and a policy of destruction aimed at the Indigenous People and former uranium miners from the 1940's until today.

This documentary speaks about the Indigenous landscape of the Desert Southwest and desire for future drilling in the Grand Canyon. We also focus on the lives being destroyed by this deadly legacy and the health effects of radiation exposure... as a cruel secret is carried on the face of the wind.

"We are at war for our survival"... Norman Patrick Brown - Navajo Nation
