For Today

Meaningful Movies Presents 'Princess Angeline'

Meet filmmakers Sandy and Yasu Osawa at a special screening of Princess Angeline, which delves into some critical Duwamish history. The film takes a look at Duwamish Indians being pushed out of the city in 1865, a decade after Chief Seattle signed the 1855 Treaty of Point Elliott which relinquished the lands of Puget Sound to the United States government. 

In a discussion afterward about landlessness, hear how Princess Angeline and the growth of the city represents a greater struggle for tribal recognition today.

'Arresting Power' Seattle Screening

Community policing is gaining a lot of traction in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest—take Wednesday's Community Police Commission meeting, where safety concerns about the police presence at #BlackLivesMatter and May Day protests took center stage. Arresting Power provides a historical and political analysis on policing by focusing on cases in Portland.

This film challenges the notion that the Pacific Northwest is devoid of racially charged history: interviews feature stories about everyday harassment, lives lost, intimidation, and 50 years' worth of activist efforts to change the game. 

'Arresting Power' in Seattle, Tue, May 19, 6pm, UW Department of Communications Rm 120, Free
