Boston Premiere of Bounty Film
April 12, 2022 @ 6:00 pm CDT
Bounty reveals the hidden story of the Phips Proclamation, one of many scalp-bounty proclamations used to exterminate Native people in order to take their land in what is now New England. In the film, Penobscot parents and children resist erasure and commemorate survival by reading and reacting to the government-issued Phips Proclamation’s call for colonial settlers to hunt, scalp, and murder Penobscot people.
WHAT: Watch Bounty and then join Penobscot Nation Tribal Ambassador and Bounty filmmaker Maulian Dana, Bounty filmmaker Dawn Neptune Adams (Penobscot), Upstander Project learning director Mishy Lesser, and Upstander Project director and filmmaker Adam Mazo along with special guests from Revolutionary Spaces for a conversation after the film.
WHEN: April 12, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. ET
WHERE: Old South Meeting House, Boston, Massachusetts
