Doctrine of Recovery film posterThe Associated Students of Wenatchee Valley College at Omak (ASWVCO) Red Road Association presents a screening of the film “Doctrine of Recovery” at the Omak Theater on Thursday, Oct. 13. A discussion panel will follow the film screening. This event is free and open to the public.

The screening will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Omak Theater (108 N. Main St.). Doors open at 6 p.m., and optional donations to the Foundation for Youth Resiliency & Engagement (FYRE) can be made during the event.

About the film: “Three generations of Tribal women speak what has gone unspoken, and unapologetically expose the influence of founding patriarchs and white supremacy in places most never thought to look, and in doing so demonstrate the ongoing and devastating formula patterned by the Doctrine of Discovery.” Learn more about the film at www.doctrineofrecovery.com.

The ASWVCO Red Road Association is co-sponsoring this event in collaboration with The Methow Interpretive Center, Aboriginal Outfitters, FYRE, and Room One.
