A Reflection of Life

World MUSE believes film is a powerful medium for highlighting social justice issues and amplifying the voices of those most directly impacted by them. We have partnered with Unlocked Films to produce a series of documentary films that inspire reflection, education, and action. 

“A Reflection of Life” explores water issues in the Pacific Northwest, while noting the broader issues facing the entire West, with an emphasis on centering Indigenous voices. Filmmaker Jesse Locke interviewed members of The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, The Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation, Chugach Alaska Native Corporation and Valdez Native Tribes, The Klamath Tribes, The Nez Perce Tribe, The Hopi Tribe, and Standing Rock Tribe to amplify the Indigenous stories and wisdom featured in the film.

 World MUSE has also partnered with COCC’s Native American College Prep Program, along with two Warm Springs filmmakers, to produce a short film featuring the voices of Indigenous Youth. This will be screened along with “A Reflection of Life” on April 20th at both The Tower Theater and Madras Performing Arts Center. A Conversation Series exploring some of the topics covered in the films will be held on April 21st at High Desert Music Hall in Redmond.
