  • January 24, Next Stage, Putney, VT <br /> Re-learning the Land: A Story of Red Crow College as part of its [FRAMED] film series
      

    Next Stage Arts Project will present the original film Re-learning the Land: A Story of Red Crow College as part of its [FRAMED] film series at Next Stage on Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 7:00 pm.

    Tickets are $12.00, available online at nextstagearts.org or at the door. Filmgoers receive a 20% discount on entrees at The Gleanery, with reservation at 802-387-3052.

    RE-LEARNING THE LAND is a story of the Blackfoot First Nations community in southern Alberta, Canada, and how they were retaking control of their education system within Red Crow Community College. The film traces the decolonization of their learning and the development of an innovative program, Kainai Studies, within Red Crow College, the same site as a former Residential School. The Kainai Studies program was reclaiming and teaching to a new generation the Blackfoot knowledge system that sustained their community on their land for thousands of years.

    The film, made by directors Udi Mandel and Kelly Teamey in collaboration with members from the Blackfoot community, raises a host of important questions related to the purpose of education and what it takes to create a deep ecological consciousness and connection with our local environment. By witnessing how students and faculty within Red Crow College are re-building relationships with the land around them, we see a greater sense of purpose, confidence and identity from amongst those participating and learning within the Kainai Studies program.   The screening will be followed by a conversation with the filmmakers and with Rich Holschuh from the Vermont Commission for Native American Affairs. About the directors: Udi Mandel Butler and Kelly Teamey are co-founders of the Enlivened Learning Project  and theEcoversities Alliance. They are also current Faculty in Sustainable Development at the SIT Graduate Institute, developing a new MA program in Sustainable Development (and Regenerative Practices). Their work has included an examination and critique of traditional sustainable development and current higher education systems and a collaboration with alternatives (of higher education) that are emerging from social and ecological movements and indigenous communities across the world. For anintroduction to the Enlivened Learning project see: https://vimeo.com/102593162

    About Rich Holschuh

  • February 10, Next Stage, Putney, VT <br /> Dateline Saigon
      

    PUTNEY, VT –  Next Stage Arts Project will present the original film DATELINE SAIGON, part of the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival Vermont Tour, as part of its [FRAMED] film series at Next Stage on Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 7:00 pm.  Tickets are $12, on sale in advance at nextstagearts.org and at the door.

    Award-winning DATELINE SAIGON tells the story of five young journalists whose courageous reporting during the early years of the Vietnam War in the face of fierce opposition — and worse — from our government is uncannily relevant to challenges journalists face today.  Dateline-Saigon profiles five Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists — The New York Times’s David Halberstam; The Associated Press’s Malcolm Browne, Peter Arnett, and the legendary photojournalist Horst Faas; and United Press International’s Neil Sheehan.

    Narrated by Sam Waterston, Dateline-Saigon has all the drama and high stakes of All the President’s Men and the tragedy and romance of The Quiet American.  

    Dateline Saigon is written and directed by Thomas Herman, produced by Good Neighbor Productions in association with Northern Light Productions.

    “The best film about journalism in Vietnam I’ve ever seen.”

    -Bob Schieffer, former anchor of CBS Evening News and moderator of Face the Nation

    There will be a hosted post screening discussion.

      The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival (middfilmest.org) is a juried competition dedicated to the work of first and second time filmmakers. Jay Craven is the Artistic Director. In addition to its annual summer Festival, MNFF has also created the MNFF Vermont Tour that takes some of its best feature films from the August event to six geographically diverse venues around the state the following February.
