Dear *|FNAME|*,

This month, join us for a special screening of Weaving Worlds, a film by Bennie Klain. In this compelling and intimate portrait of economic and cultural survival through art, Navajo filmmaker Bennie Klain takes viewers into the world of contemporary Navajo weavers and their struggles for self-sufficiency. Highlighting untold stories and colorful characters involved in the making and selling of Navajo rugs, Weaving Worlds explores the lives of Diné artisans and their unique—and often controversial—relationship with reservation traders. The film artfully relates the Diné concepts of kinship and reciprocity with the human and cultural connections to sheep, wool, water and the land, showing how Indigenous artisans strive for cultural vitality and environmental sustainability in the face of globalization by “reweaving the world.”
