Gather (2020) ($4)

0

From Executive Producers Jason Momoa and Brian Mendoza comes this new film, which follows the stories of Native Americans on the frontlines of a growing movement to reconnect with spiritual and cultural identities that were devastated by genocide. An Indigenous chef embarks on a ambitious project to reclaim ancient food ways on the Apache Reservation; in South Dakota a gifted Lakota high school student raised on a buffalo ranch is proving her tribe's Native wisdom through her passion for science; and a group of young men of the Yurok tribe in Northern California are struggling to keep their culture alive and rehabilitate the habitat of their sacred salmon. All these stories combine to show how the reclaiming and recovery of ancient food ways is a way forward for Native Americans to bring back health and vitality to their people.

"Gorgeous (...) There are gems here, from the beautiful scenes of the Yurok tribesmen fishing for salmon in the fog-shrouded rivers of Northern California (...) The documentary has a lovely feel and contains the start of a necessary conversation about issues from food sovereignty to the legacy of colonial trauma.” - Pop Matters
