COLUMBUS DIDN'T DISCOVER US

Indigenous Perspectives on the Columbus Legacy

A moving testimony about the impact of the Columbus legacy on the lives of indigenous peoples from across the hemisphere. Native people speak about the devastation of their cultures resulting from the European invasion, contemporary struggles over land and human rights, the importance of reviving spiritual traditions, and the need to alert the world to the environmental crises threatening the survival of the planet. Includes additional film, FROM PLYMOUTH ROCK TO STANDING ROCK. (51 minutes)

POWER STRUGGLE

Grassroots Activists Making A Difference

Filmed over five years, POWER STRUGGLE portrays the heated political battle to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, located on the banks of the Connecticut River in southern Vermont. The film follows the unfolding drama as citizen activists and elected state officials—alarmed at increasing safety violations—take on the federal government and one of the biggest power companies in the United States and eventually win. POWER STRUGGLE is a timely, inspiring story of democracy in action; about whether citizens’ voices will be heard against big moneyed interests, and what people are doing to make a difference for a sustainable energy future. (86 minutes)
