" Full marks, for bringing this shocking story to the fore, exposing an injustice inflicted on women like Jean who are still waiting for an apology from the federal government"
We need your help to raise money for two kick ass brave Native American women taking the USA government to task.
Amà is a film which breaks the story of the illegal sterilisation of Native American women.
Charon Asetoyer and Jean Whitehorse partnered with me ( Lorna Tucker) to make Amá ten years ago and it's has been an incredible journey .
They have bravely stepped out and told their personal story. This film is aiding a class action suit against the Canadian and USA government. We need your help to raise £1500 pounds to pay for the flights food and accommodation for Charon and Jean to go to the first screenings of the film at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, where they will hold question and answer sessions, and to publicise their much needed film.
By donating you will get a personal thank you from Jean, Charon and myself. If we raise more than this target, any additional funds raised will go towards helping us attend further festivals, making sure the film reaches the widest audience possible.
You can watch the trailer below and a link to the First confirmed Festival xx
Lets get these incredible women to the Festival so they can spread their message far and wide!
THANK YOU from all of us!
