Announcing a special film screening engagement for Northern Michigan

BAD RIVER is a riveting new documentary about the Wisconsin-based Bad River Band and its ongoing fight for sovereignty. The Canadian corporation Enbridge and its Line 5 crude oil pipeline threaten the Great Lakes and the Band's way of life.

The story unfolds in a groundbreaking way through a series of shocking revelations, devastating losses, and a powerful legacy of defiance and resilience. This inspiring film brings us through an epic sweep of history into the present, with a David vs. Goliath battle to save Lake Superior, the largest freshwater resource in America.

“We gotta protect it… die for it, if we have to.” - Eldred Corbine, a Bad River Tribal Elder

This powerful new documentary film is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio (I Am Jane Doe, A Most Beautiful Thing) and narrated by Indigenous activist and model Quannah ChasingHorse and award-winning actor Edward Norton (Primal Fear, American History X, Birdman).

The film opens in 11 AMC theaters nationwide on March 15. Oil & Water Don't Mix is hosting an exclusive screening for our Northern Michigan community in Traverse City! A brief panel discussion will follow the screening.

The Enbridge occupation of Bad River Territory in Wisconsin is another chapter in the systemic oppression of Native Americans. This must-see film will help to change the narrative on how we deal with this Canadian corporation. Learn more about the film and other venues, including Sterling Heights. There is a special screening in Sault Ste Marie on March 15 and Ann Arbor on March 23.

"It’s a powerful chronicle of some of the saddest chapters in American history and a hopeful picture of the emerging possibilities for power in the crucial fights of our time." - Bill McKibben, Author & 350.org Founder
