Event Description

Join us every third Sunday for Doc and Dis, where we screen a documentary and discuss it afterwards!

Executive produced by Natalie Portman. Terrence Malick, and Chris Eyre, THE SEVENTH FIRE is a fascinating new documentary about the Native American gang crisis.

When Rob Brown, a Native American gang leader on a remote Minnesota reservation, is sentenced to prison for a fifth time, he must confront his role in bringing violent drug culture into his beloved Ojibwe community. As Rob reckons with his past, his seventeen-year-old protégé, Kevin, dreams of the future: becoming the most powerful and feared Native gangster on the reservation.

We'll be screening the 75-minute film and having discussion afterwards.
