Jan. 25: Field Notes in Occidental

Cannes award-winning filmmaker Rob Nilsson (Northern Lights) is in the North Bay to present a remarkable series of short documentaries—Prairie Fire, Survivor and Rebel Earth—that makeup ‘The Prairie Trilogy.’ The trilogy of films tells the story of North Dakota’s Socialist Nonpartisan League, who fought a hard-won battle in 1916 to regain voting rights that had been taken from them by those in power. See the three short docs and engage in a discussion on the films’ continued relevance in our current political climate on Friday, Jan. 25, at Occidental Center for the Arts, 3850 Doris Murphy Court, Occidental. 7pm. Free. 707.874.9392.
