Circle Cinema continues their Native Spotlight Series with “Visions for the Future,” a free event on Sunday, April 14, sponsored by the Flint Family Foundation and featured director Loren Waters (Cherokee/Kiowa). The event is open to the public and includes a catered reception, two short film screenings, and a moderated Q&A with special guests.

Circle Cinema invites the public to come together for the anticipated Tulsa premiere of "ᏗᏂᏠᎯ ᎤᏪᏯ (Meet Me at the Creek)" by Waters, an award-winning local filmmaker. Waters is joined by filmmaker and model Quannah ChasingHorse (Han Gwich’in and Sicangu/Oglala Lakota), who will screen her short film “Walking Two Worlds” during the event.

Tulsa filmmaker and Reservation Dogs creator and director Sterlin Harjo will moderate the special guest Q&A with panelists Waters, Chasinghorse, and "ᏗᏂᏠᎯ ᎤᏪᏯ (Meet Me at the Creek)" producer and featured storyteller Rebecca Jim (Cherokee Nation).

Directed by Loren Waters, “ᏗᏂᏠᎯ ᎤᏪᏯ (Meet Me at the Creek)” tells a story of interconnectedness and Cherokee values through the lifelong fight of Rebecca Jim, a Cherokee Nation citizen and Waterkeeper Warrior, as she leads the effort to restore Tar Creek located in Miami, Oklahoma. U.S. government officials have designated Tar Creek as “irreversibly damaged,” but Rebecca refuses to accept that.

ChasingHorse produced and featured in the short “Walking Two Worlds.” Fueled by an unwavering love and responsibility for the land, Hän Gwich’in 20 year-old Quannah ChasingHorse, and her mother Jody Potts-Joseph, are taking a stand to defend their sacred homelands, including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

4:00 p.m. – Reception catered by Burning Cedar Sovereign Wellness
5:00 p.m. – Screenings begin
5:45 p.m. – Special guest Q&A with Loren Waters, Quannah ChasingHorse, and Rebecca Jim, moderated by Sterlin Harjo
