Winter Film Series: Voices From The Barrens
January 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
MOFGA & MFT are pleased to present a winter film series! Join us for three thought-provoking documentary films exploring topics related to food, farming, and social justice.
Thursday, January 28 @ 6-8 PM
Join us for a virtual screening of Voices from the Barrens: Native People, Blueberries and Sovereignty, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmaker and others featured in the film. Each August, the Wabanaki Tribes of Maritime Canada and Maine travel to Maine’s wild blueberry barrens to harvest. This traditional, hand raked practice is passed down to each generation, but 21st century agri-business and a global food market threaten the tradition’s future. More about the film HERE.
We’ve added more spots to the screening! RSVP HERE!
When you register we’ll send you the Zoom link for the event. We’ll also send you a link to the film two days before the event so you can watch at your convenience if you choose.
Stay tuned — film dates for February and March coming soon!
