DAWNLAND: New Feature Documentary Film Now in Production
Our feature documentary film, DAWNLAND, in production since November 2013 follows the “truth and reconciliation” process in Maine, bearing witness to Native American families who suffered under the state’s child welfare policies. For decades, disproportionate numbers of Native children have been removed from their families and culture.
This documentary will be built around the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), the first Native American-focused Commission. We aim to open difficult dialogues with audiences to confront privilege, racism, and systems of oppression. This project is independent from the TRC.

The Upstander Project is a comprehensive documentary and educational outreach project created and based in Boston. Coexist is a film about government-mandated reconciliation efforts following the Rwanda genocide, told from the point of view of victims, perpetrators, bystanders, social commentators, and public officials. The film, Teacher’s Guide, and professionally-led teacher workshops serve as an entry-point to important conversations on how to cultivate forgiveness, compassion, and upstanding in our own lives.
