Presented by Bright Blue EcoMedia and Main Street Landing
Directors Jon Erickson & Jacob Smith will be available for Q&A afterwards.
Vermont premiere.

A feature documentary at the crossroads of the 2016 election and the fight for civil rights, economic fairness & democracy for all.

From the campaign trail with Senator Bernie Sanders to a local political race in the failing economy of rural West Virginia. From a mass sit-in on the U.S. Capitol steps to racially charged police commission hearings in Los Angeles. Waking the Sleeping Giant makes sense of this moment in American politics, exploring widespread discontent during the 2016 election cycle, Donald Trump’s dramatic electoral victory, and the challenges ahead for those building a re-energized progressive movement.

If the 6:30 show fills, a second 9:00 pm screening may be added from the wait list.
