AWAKE: A Dream from Standing Rock
Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock tells the story of the #NODAPL Native-led water protectors’ actions to enforce treaty obligations and halt construction of a $3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline under the Missouri River at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
The documentary is co- directed by Indigenous filmmaker and Digital Smoke Signalsfounder Myron Dewey (1972-2021), a citizen of the Walker River Paiute Tribe and a pioneer in drone camera journalism and live stream field journalism.
Dewey’s co-directors are Academy Award nominated filmmaker Josh Fox (Gasland, How to Let Go of The World and Learn To Love Everything Climate Can’t Change) and Academy Award nominated filmmaker James Spione (Incident In New Baghdad).
An event in conjunction with the Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative at Emory University
