Thursday November 11th 2010 - Opening Night at the Palace of Fine Arts - 11/11/10 Evening Screenings 7:00 pm
Featuring the documentary feature film "A Good Day to Die" which is up for this year's "Best Documentary Feature" award.

This film tells the personal story of Dennis Banks, an Anishnabe man, born on the Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota in 1973, who grew up to become a leader of the American Indian Movement (AIM) which holds a rich history here in the Bay Area. Dennis Banks' life as an AIM Leader continues even as he approaches his 74th year and his efforts, along with those of AIM, were instrumental in changing the destiny of many American Indian people for the better because he and others were willing to die to change things. It will always be a 'good day to die' for anyone who stands up for what is right, better if we would all stand up together and create a better world for all human beings.

Directors Lynn Salt and David Mueller will be present for the screening as will the renowned American Indian Activist Dennis Banks, all available for Q&A.
