      EVENT DETAILS
      Beyond Recognition Film Screening and Discussion


      After decades struggling to protect her ancestors’ burial places, now engulfed by San Francisco’s sprawl, a Native woman from a non-federally recognized Ohlone tribe and her allies occupy a sacred site to prevent its desecration. When this life-altering event fails to stop the development, they vow to follow a new path- to establish the first women-led urban Indigenous land trust. Beyond Recognition explores the quest to preserve one’s culture and homeland in a society bent on erasing them. Through cinéma vérité, interviews, and stunning footage of the land, Beyond Recognition introduces Corrina Gould, Johnella LaRose, and Indian People Organizing for Change as they embark on an incredible journey to transform the way we see cities.  The film is directed and produced by Michelle Grace Steinberg and co-produced by Robyn Bykofsky. We will be joined for a discussion following the film by Corrina Gould and Michelle Grace Steinberg.
