A daring episode in San Francisco history that turned the country upside down: the occupation of Alcatraz Island by “Indians of All Tribes.” In the opening half of our show, shorts by Ohlone makers, first-ever viewing of slides from the Alcatraz Newsletter, and films about ancient villages, sacred sites, and endangered species. After intermission, director James Fortier introduces his inspirational Alcatraz Is Not an Island, a stirring record of the epochal event, told with sharp-spoken verse, superb cinematography, an incredible Native soundtrack, with major appearances by John Trudell and Richard Oakes. PLUS poetic pieces by Ben Wood, Chris Kennedy, and Jesse Drew, representatives from the Int’l Treaty Council, and a display of rare period posters.
