On Sunday, October 23rd, The Bozeman Doc Series presents a special event co-hosted by the Montana Wilderness Association. The evening begins at 6pm with a reception in the Emerson lobby featuring food and drink from the Emerson Grill, followed at 6:30pm by a screening of the short documentary Our Last Refuge, and the Montana premiere of the Sundance Special Jury Prize-winning documentary, When Two Worlds Collide.
A tense and immersive documentary, When Two Worlds Collide chronicles the battle between the Peruvian government, led by President Alan Garcia, and the indigenous tribes of the Peruvian Amazon, led by the passionate leader Alberto Pizango, over the government’s aggressive attempts to extract oil, minerals and gas from untouched indigenous lands. When Garcia ignores the pleas of the people, a tense war of words erupts into deadly violence.
In Our Last Refuge, Bozeman filmmaker Daniel Glick examines the story of the Badger-Two Medicine, the sacred homeland of the Blackfeet Nation of Montana, and the decades-long struggle to protect it from oil and gas exploration.
Tickets are $10, $8 for students at the door and at Cactus Records, Movie Lovers, and www.bozemandocseries.org
