A film by: Elleni Sclavenitis
Film Screening and Panel Discussion with the Filmmaker and Guests.
Only the Earth and the Mountains interrogates the narrative of settler colonialism in the American West by white pioneers and its implications to society today by examining the repercussions of the Sand Creek Massacre, in which more than 200 Cheyenne and Arapaho people were murdered by U.S. Cavalry troops on November 29, 1864. In speaking to the survivors' descendants, it becomes clear that this event is a living, perpetual loss-one that should not be forgotten.
