Promised Land is a social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they've long been denied. In following their story, both in our regions shared heritage and in their modern struggles for federal recognition, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty.|
Promised Land is produced and directed by Vasant and Sarah Salcedo, and sponsored by 4Culture and San Francisco Film Society. It has been chosen for the award for Achievement in Documentary Filmmaking at the 10th Annual LA Skins Fest, and was an official selection for the 41st Annual American Indian Film Festival, Northwest Film Forum's 19th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival, the 12th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival, and the 5th Annual Social Justice Film Festival, among others.
Special guest speaker and 4th generation grand-daughter of Chief Si'ahl, Mary Lou Slaughter, will share her story with the audience. She is also featured in the film.
Admission to this screening is free, but reservations are strongly recommended. We do not want cost to be a barrier, and hope that many people in our community can come and take advantage of this valuable learning opportunity.
