Movies That Matters: Film Screenings for Schools

April 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

“Stories I Didn’t Know” (2020) Q&A with Rita Davern, director; Melody Gilbert, producer; and Ramona Kitto Stately, protagonist.

Advance viewing is recommended; film will not be shown during Q&A

While Rita Davern’s family members have always been proud to say that their ancestors once owned Pike Island, a beautiful piece of land in Minnesota, the story of its acquisition reveals a complicated history. Davern’s attempt to understand that history leads her on a journey that requires facing the fraught legacy of westward expansion in the United States and her own family’s role in displacing the Dakota people who once inhabited the land.

Live virtual Q&A on April 7, 2022 from 11 am – noon EDT with with Rita Davern, director; Melody Gilbert, producer; and Ramona Kitto Stately, protagonist. To register, email [email protected]
