Screening of Mr. Beaton's latest film "Second Thanksgiving"

Friday, February 27, 2004


Filmmaker Danny Beaton will visit Trent University on Tuesday, March 2 for a screening of his new film "Second Thanksgiving," as part of a Native Studies 100 class in room 137 in the Science Complex from 11:55 a.m. to
12:55 p.m.

Mr. Beaton will then talk about the film and his work in the Native Studies Lounge in Otonabee College from 1 to 2 p.m. All are welcome to the screening and this Pine Tree Talk. Admission is free of charge.

Mr. Beaton has produced and directed four nationally broadcast films that feature Native American spiritual elders voicing their concerns for the need of society to return to spiritual values and the protection of Mother Earth.

"Second Thanksgiving" highlights the teachings of Robertjohn, the Elder who describes the First Thanksgiving as the time the new people came to this land and were given material nourishment by the First Peoples. The Second Thanksgiving, the present, is the time when the First Peoples are giving the newcomers spiritual nourishment.
