With director Joe Peeler in person!

Dir. Joe Peeler, Rebecca Landsberry-Baker. 2023, U.S. 98 mins. In 2018, the Muscogee Nation, one of the only Native American tribes to have established its own free press, suffered a grievous setback to its civil liberties when members of its own legislative body abruptly repealed the three-year-old law guaranteeing protection of the media, with one representative citing a lack of “positivity” in coverage by the tribe’s chief outlet Mvskoke Media. In this spellbinding real-life tale of journalistic activism, filmmakers Peeler and Landsberry-Baker follow the struggle of reporter Angel Ellis as she organizes the Mvskoke Media and general populace to push through a constitutional amendment.
