CID FILM UPDATES: April

WORLD PREMIERE OF DAWNLAND AT THE CLEVELAND INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

We are thrilled to announce the world premiere of 'DAWNLAND'! For decades, child welfare authorities have been removing Native American children from their homes to save them from being Indian. In Maine, the first official "truth and reconciliation commission" in the United States begins a historic investigation. Dawnland goes behind-the-scenes as this historic body grapples with difficult truths, redefines reconciliation, and charts a new course for state and tribal relations.

APRIL 13-15th - WORLD PREMIERE at The Cleveland International Film Festival (3 screenings)
