Sacred Run
THE SACRED RUN, the lotus and the feather, a 55-minute documentary film by Andrea Sadler, will be shown at 7 pm on Friday, April 20th at Tompkins Corners Cultural Center in Putnam Valley, NY.

The evening will honor American Indian Leader, Dennis Banks (April 12, 1937  October 29, 2017), who with First Nation people from North America and Japan, were joined by volunteers from thirteen countries on a ceremonial run finishing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This remarkable physical and spiritual journey of a diverse group of all ages voyaging 4,000 km along the Sea of Japan, carried the simple message, that All Life is Sacred. Banks was an Anishinaabe Native American activist, teacher, and author and a longtime leader of the American Indian Movement, which he co-founded in 1968 to ensure and protect the civil rights of Native Americans living in urban areas.

The event will also commemorate the seventh anniversary of the Fukushima Daichi nuclear disaster which occurred following an earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011.
Native wisdom is woven with Japanese traditions in the film, which is a stunning and inspirational portrait of individuals committed to promoting peace, respect for the earth and all life, and to sharing the rich cultural diversity of the human race. A lyrical film, it reveals that the transformation of the individual ripples out to infuse the world with more consciousness.

The evenings program will incorporate an opening blessing by Donna Coane, Native American drummer and member of the Schaghticoke First Nation. After the film showing there will be a Q & A and Circle ceremony to share prayers and gratitude. Refreshments will be served.

"The Sacred Run, the lotus and the feather" is one of most inspiring, powerful, awesome depictions of a sacred journey of hope, love and beauty." - Pamela Rickenbach, Founder of Blue Star Equiculture - "Not only is SACRED RUN a film that teaches and entertains, it is also a movie that takes you on a most inspiring physical adventure and then launches you out of the theater or off the couch convinced that you can save the planet." - Ezra Soiferman, Filmmaker, Montreal, Quebec.
The essence of filmmaking is to teach and to share. The Sacred Run by Andrea Sadler teaches us about love and shares with us a sense of hope.  I can offer no higher praise. - Murray Jurak, First Nations Filmmaker, Edmonton, Alberta
