Indigenous Music and Movies Series
Indigenous musicians, artists, filmmakers, producers and actors will be showcased this summer in a four-part music and movies series at Father Hennepin Bluffs Park in Minneapolis each Tuesday in August. The series is hosted by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, First Nations Composer Initiative, and Dream of Wild Health. Various Community Artists will showcase their work, with an Information Alley from community programs showcasing their work in the community. "Indigenous Music and Movies in the Park" series is a celebration of Us and is a way to connect our voices both locally and nationally through music and movies produced by American Indian musicians and film producers. Please visit our website for more information.
Movies With An Important Message
This summer Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MRPB) and End Time Harvest Productions will be screening the award nominated anti-bullying film “Boys Cry” at six different parks, with outdoor and indoor showings culminating with an opportunity to meet cast and crew members on October 19. Boy's Cry is a fiction film based on a true account that details the tale of an African raised teenager whose life takes an incredible turn for the worse when his peers target him for his differences in culture and ultimately force him to engage in acts that, without influence, he would never commit.

- Sunday, August 11 at Whittier Park
