Media Activist Reflections From #ShutItDown Pipeline Protest with Filmmaker Deia Schlosberg [CANCELED/COVID]

May 15, 2020 @ 4:30 pm 5:00 pm EDT

Due to COVID rates and concern for community safety, this event has been CANCELED.

Join us for a workshop with Deia Schlosberg before the screening of her film, The Story of Plastic, at 6pm! Deia Schlosberg (DIRECTOR/PRODUCER) made national news in October, 2016, when she was arrested and charged with 45 years’ worth of felonies for filming the #ShutItDown pipeline protest in North Dakota. Part of a worrying pattern of attacks on journalistic freedom, her case led to an open letter to President Barack Obama co-signed by 30 celebrities. Deia produced Josh Fox’s climate change film, How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change (Sundance/HBO). Deia also co-produced Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock (Tribeca/Netflix), and The Reluctant Radical (2018). Deia also co-directed and produced Cold Love. Her short film, Backyard, a look at the human impacts of fracking, won two student Emmys (Best Documentary, Bricker Humanitarian Award).
