Anti-Racist Film Club - April

The April selection for ARFC is Wind River (2017) which has been called a “neo-western” crime drama.

While in pursuit of a mountain lion, a federal fish and wildlife hunter discovers the body of Natalie Hanson, a young girl frozen in the snow. With few resources from the feds, the investigation struggles to piece together what happened to Natalie and the mysterious circumstances of her death. Against high stakes and a dangerous imbalance of power, the truth might just bring closure to a grieving community.

This film is an R-rated thriller NOT suitable for children. We would also like to issue a content warning for sexual assault, self-harm, and violence. There are very graphic depictions of all these potential triggers in the film so, if you'd prefer to screen at home or skip this month's discussion, we look forward to seeing you next month.

We'll be showing the movie downstairs in the First Olympia UMC chapel on Sunday, 4/7 @12:30pm. There will be a light lunch provided before/during the screening. There will also be popcorn! Our discussion will be held the next Thursday, 4/11 @7pm over Zoom.

If you're interested in either of these events, please RSVP here:

And (if you just can't wait until Sunday) check out the newest episode of the ARFC podcast! This month, Lauren spoke with Pastor Kellen and Laura Edmonston to discuss this complex film and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Crisis. Listen here:
