Any Positive Change hosts ‘Powerlands’ showing July 24



LAKEPORT, Calif. — Join Any Positive Change Inc. in welcoming award winning filmmaker and director Ivey Camille Manybeads Tso to the Lake County premiere of her film, “Powerlands.”

The showings will take place at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday, July 24, at the Soper Reese Community Theatre, 275 S. Main St. in Lakeport.

Admission is free but donations will be gratefully accepted.

In “Powerlands,” Tso investigates displacement of Indigenous people and devastation of the environment caused by the same fossil fuel and extractive corporations that have exploited the land where she was born. On this personal and political journey she learns from Indigenous activists across three continents.

As this film exposes a range of corporate abuses and Indigenous resistance in Colombia, Mexico, the Philippines and Navajo Nation, the connections are clear: in every corner of the earth, Indigenous people are being pushed off their land by corporate extractive industries, working with state forces.

The resistance also looks similar across the planet: a combination of community steadfastness, legal struggles, political lobbying, and direct action, while also working on the ground to physically maintain land and culture.

Tso will be on hand to introduce each showing and will be available for a question and answer session after the film credits.
