"When today's stories of crushing greed and endless growth have come to an end, what, then, will be the new stories?"

This film was created as an educational tool that can be used to move us beyond disempowerment, in order to enact real change in a changing world.

Chris Wood of BALE (Building A Local Economy) was inspired to create a film that would answer the question: “Will we have the wisdom to survive climate chaos and planetary destruction?” – after he had seen Old Dog Documentaries’ film: THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE: Climate Change, Capitalism, and Community.

Dancing With the Cannibal Giant offers five remarkable stories that answer this very question. Narrated by Penobscot elder, Sherri Mitchell (Weh’na Ha’mu Kwasset), we are introduced to the Penobscot mythology of the cannibal giant: a creature awakened by the destruction of mother earth.  The film is told through the lens of this powerful prophecy. It invites the viewer to ask, "What am I doing and what are we doing, together, to put the giant back to sleep?"
