FILM: River of Return
with Filmmaker Sammy Matsaw
Thursday, October 13, 2022 - 6:00 PM
Filmmaker Sammy Matsaw will present his short documentary film, River of Return, co-created with his wife Jessica. Sammy will discuss their ongoing work with Shoshone-Bannock youth on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Through guided river trips, the Matsaws have created a corridor of connection for their tribal youth and people through their project, River Newe. Throughout the film, the community forages, fishes, and navigates the landscape together. They dig into their personal histories and language while telling a broader story of indigenous power and resilience.
Part of the BIG IDEA project Dams: Reservoirs, Reclamation, Renewal, Aug 26–Nov 12. 2022.
