Magic of Cinema will resume in Winter quarter.
Idaho’s Forgotten War (2009) highlights the courage and faith of the Idaho Kootenai people and one woman, Amy Trice, who declared war in 1974 on the United States government. Robbed of their lands, culture, and hunting rights, the Kootenai people moved from place to place, facing complete annihilation. Homes provided to the community by the government were decaying and offered minimal shelter. When a Tribal Elder froze to death on a cold winter’s day in his unheated home, Trice and the Kootenai people feared it was only a matter of time before the entire tribe disappeared. The story of Trice and her community’s resilience and bravery is an inspiring one poignantly told by the director Sonya Rosario.
Along with being a filmmaker, Rosario is an activist, a published poet, and a founding member of the Women of Color Alliance. She has received the Legacy of Leadership Award from Spelman College and a Certificate of Achievement from Yale University’s Women’s Campaign School.
Directed by Sonia Rosario. This screening will be followed by a discussion with Rosario.
