At 7:30pm, a link will be made available to view the 3 short films (including “Stories from Land Back Camp”) from your own spaces. This will be a live viewing, not a 24 hour link. So make sure you tune in at 7:30pm.

Moontime ProductionsNearly a year after meeting at the Oceti Sakowin camp during the NoDAPL resistance movement at Standing Rock, five Indigenous Water Protectors are reunited in Toronto, Ontario to share the ways in which the ‘spirit of the camp’ created a family out of their shared passion and action, ultimately transforming their lives forever. Brought together by a calling to protect the water, their experiences moved them to further elevate their voices in solidarity with the global Indigenous community.
