Indigenous Leaders & Film Director Will Reveal

In honor of Taos Earth Day, the Global Peace & Water Walk, and Rights for the Rio Grande, the award-winning Rights of Nature film INVISIBLE HAND will screen at Taos Environmental Film Festival on Saturday, April 23rd, 10am, at Taos Center for the Arts. Indigenous leaders and the film’s co-director, Melissa Troutman, will host discussion after the film about efforts to secure legal personhood rights for the Rio Grande. Afterward, they invite the audience to join the Earth Day Festival outside the arts center in Kit Carson Park for bands, vendors, dancers, activities, and a community mural.  Executive produced by Emmy-award winning actor Mark Ruffalo, INVISIBLE HAND is a documentary that critics call a “paradigm shifting” story about the global struggle between Nature and society.
“The water, air and land have become toxic dumps, and the law is rigged against us,” said Ruffalo. “People are adapting to these perils in daring and creative ways – and winning. INVISIBLE HAND shows a way to fight the forces that put profit above all else while addressing a root cause of our flawed system.”

The film follows the Rights of Nature movement that began in Pennsylvania, USA, and travels to the international fight at Standing Rock (North Dakota), celebrates the Seneca Nation.
