"Warrior Women" and other films to be screened

March 7–10, 2021 @ East Tennessee State University

• MARCH 7-10: The documentary film “Warrior Women” is available for streaming as part of the 2020-2021 South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, sponsored by Mary B. Martin School of the Arts and the Martin Center for the Arts at East Tennessee State University. “Warrior Women”is the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, an American Indian Movement leader who shaped a kindred group of activists’ children – including her daughter Marcy – into the “We Will Remember” Survival School as a Native alternative to government-run education. Together, Madonna and Marcy fought for Native rights. Through a circular Indigenous style of storytelling, this film explores what it means to navigate a movement and motherhood and how activist legacies are passed down. Registration for the free screening is available at www.etsu.edu/martin. The film’s co-directors, Christina D. King and Elizabeth A. Castle, present a pre-recorded Q&A with the audience following the screening. 423-439-8587
