"In the Light of Reverence" is a documentary film that explores American culture and its relationship to nature in three places considered sacred by native peoples: the Colorado Plateau in the Southwest, Mt. Shasta in California, and Devils Tower in Wyoming. Rich in minerals and timber and beloved by recreational users, these holy lands exert a spiritual gravity which pulls Native Americans into conflicts with mining companies, New Age practitioners, and rock climbers. The film juxtaposes reflections of Hopi, Wintu and Lakota elders on the spiritual meaning of place. "In the Light of Reverence" was honored with the Best Feature Documentary award at the American Indian Film Festival. The Building a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence film series is sponsored by Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, AFSC, Temple Beth Jacob, the Concord UU Church, UCC Peace with Justice Advocates, and NH Peace Action. Everyone is welcome. Discussion will follow film.
