ITVS Presents the Community Cinema Screening of MARCH POINT:

“This is a powerful and poetic environmental coming-of-age story. In defending their tribal lands, three young men find a mission, even a vision!” —Sherman Alexie (Spokane, Wash./Coeur D’Alene, Idaho), poet, author and screenwriter

In the late 1950s, two oil refineries were built on March Point, Washington,
an area that was once part of the Swinomish Reservation by treaty. MARCH
POINT tells the story of three Swinomish Indian Tribe teenagers who make a
movie about the destruction the refineries have wrought in their community.
