Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock Reception and Screening

The Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community and the Heard Museum invite you to join us for a film screening of «Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock,» which chronicles the #NoDAPL peaceful protests on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, followed by a Q&A with the director on Nov. 14 at 6 p.m.

About the creators
Myron Dewey (Newe-Numah/Paiute-Shoshone) is from the Walker River Paiute Tribe, Agui Diccutta Band (Trout Eaters) on his father’s side and Bishop Paiute Tribe on his mother’s side. Dewey is founder and owner of Digital Smoke Signals, a social media and film company. He holds AA and BS degrees from Haskell Indian Nations University and an MA from the University of Kansas.

With Josh Fox and James Spione, Dewey co-directed the documentary film Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock. Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2017, the film has been called “powerful” by the Hollywood Reporter and “an evocative wake-up call told as a visual poem” by IndieWire. Awake does not follow a single protagonist but instead forms a “pastiche” of narrative, mostly indigenous, voices. Dewey’s drone footage adds both immediacy and perspective, making him “one of the most closely followed journalists to come out of the movement” (IndieWire). For Dewey’s work, Awake won the Special Founders Prize for Citizen Journalism at the 2017 Traverse City Film Festival, which was founded by legendary documentarian Michael Moore.
