“Beyond Indian Country, touting the First Amendment is often something of a punchline—an excuse to say something brash, at worst. But at its best, the First Amendment guarantees some of our most beloved rights—the right to free speech and a free press.

The documentary, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year, follows the phonetically spelled Mvskoke Media and its band of impassioned journalists as they take on their tribe’s National Council to demand that free press be enshrined as law by an amendment in the nation’s constitution….”

…The foreground of political machinations and dauntless journalism in Bad Press are made hauntingly beautiful by images filmed at the heart of the reservation—listless rocking chairs on farmhouse porches and rusted Volkswagens in Fields of cattle. Landsberry-Baker and Peeler’s fillmmaking cater to the throughline of the documentary—that which is most ordinary is also most fundamental. Free speech is ill-dismissed by those of us who have never entertained the idea of its alternative—Bad Press presents free speech as a right in need of stewardship…..

FRIDAY NIGHT SPOTLIGHT FILM

COMMON GROUND

Directors Josh Tickell, Rebecca Tickell

COMMON GROUND is the highly anticipated sequel to the juggernaut success documentary Kiss the Ground, which touched over 1 billion people globally and inspired the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to put $20 billion toward soil health.

By fusing journalistic exposé with deeply personal stories from those on the front lines of the sustainable food movement, COMMON GROUND unveils a dark web of money, power, and politics behind our broken food system.

The film reveals how racist practices forged our current farm system in which farmers of all colors are literally dying to feed us.

The film profiles a hopeful and uplifting movement of white, black, and indigenous farmers who are using alternative “regenerative” models of agriculture that could balance the climate, save our health, and stabilize America’s economy—before it’s too late.

Five Screenings of features and short documentaries all focused on environmental issues and mountain culture. The team at the Eastern Sierra Mountain Film Festival has curated some of the most interesting and inspiring films on the festival circuit.
