Cassius gears up for March Madness!
March Madness at Makepeace Productions
 
Cassius gearing up for Spring
Spring is tantalizingly close, my pup Cassius is feeling his oats, and We Still Live Here is bursting out all over, with 20 screenings across the U.S. from Alaska to Georgia and a national PBS Encore Broadcast on Independent Lens to celebrate Women's History month. I only wish I could be all places at once! Beginning on March 2nd it will begin to feel like that, as I travel with the film to show it in ten cities across the American South as part of the Southern Circuit tour. Please visit our Screenings Page for a complete schedule.
 
Anne at Stanford: Where's the water?!February was wild as well, beginning with a week-long trip to California and an outreach screening at Stanford University, my alma mater. I spent many years there, first as an undergraduate and then as a graduate student learning to be a filmmaker and making my first film, Moonchild. It was great to be back, but where is the water in Lake Lagunita? The screening was terrific, attended by many Native American students and professors as well as a diverse group of linguists, anthropologists, and others, and was followed by a lively discussion with awesome linguist Leanne Hinton and former Wampanoag Language Reclamation Project President Hartman Deetz.

A recent post from Medfield, Massachusetts:

"Just got in from seeing 'We Still Live Here' - AMAZING! Brilliant film. Can't say enough good about it. I was moved to tears, inspired and profoundly touched. I will be attending the 2nd screening in March as I want to bring friends who couldn't attend this time. Also took dvd out of library for my family to watch!"
