Movie Night and Fundraiser for Indigenous Peoples Day

Sunday October 8, 5pm

Reel Injun: on the trail of the Hollywood Indian

Movie and discussion ~ a Fundraiser for Friendship House

Sunday October 8, 5pm at the SFBC

To mark Indigenous Peoples Day October 9, we are holding our second fundraiser in support of Friendship House, an Indigenous led Organization in the Mission (15th & Julian off of Mission St), that has been providing services to Native Americans for almost 60 years.

We'll provide tea and snacks, and some discussion ideas for after the movie.

Reel Injun: on the trail of the Hollywood Indian, 2010, by Neil Diamond, one of Canada's foremost Aboriginal filmmakers and photographers, from the Cree community of Waskaganish, traces the evolution of cinema’s depiction of Native people from the silent film era to today, with clips from hundreds of classic and recent Hollywood movies, and candid interviews with celebrated Native and non-Native film celebrities, activists, film critics, and historians.

All proceeds will go to Friendship House to support their programs.  The SFBC will also donate everything we receive on Sangha Nights throughout October.

Last year we raised $780 - let's see if we can top that this year.
