Crying Earth Rise Up is a documentary film by Suree Towfighnia (MFA '06) of Prairie Dust Films. The name of the film comes from an old belief of the Lakota that Mother Earth needs to be cared for through good stewardship of the land and its natural resources. The film is an intimate portrait of the human cost of uranium mining and its impact on sacred water. It tells a timely story of protecting land, water, and a way of life.
Towafighnia is an independent filmmaker and co-founder of Prairie Dust Films with Courtney Hermann. As an educator, Suree teaches master classes and workshops on documentary directing, fundraising and shooting at Columbia College Chicago, EICTV in Cuba, Cinema Chicago and for non-profit groups. Since 2005, she has worked with the Center for Community Arts.
Admission to the screening is free - register today!
Co-sponsored by Cinema Art + Science and the Office of Development and Alumni Relations and co-produced by Viva Doc.
