Tonight: Showing of new Fadiman film


"Reclaiming Their Voice," the latest documentary film by Dorothy Fadiman of Menlo Park, will be shown at a special event on Tuesday, Dec. 14, in Palo Alto.

The screening is set for 7:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room of the Unitarian Universalist Church, 505 E. Charleston Road. Admission is free.

Subtitled "The Native American Vote in New Mexico & Beyond," the film "documents ways in which Native Americans have been disenfranchised over centuries, and are now becoming politically active," according to the film's website.

Narrated by actor Peter Coyote, the film tells personal stories that demonstrate how minority communities are working against injustice through education, activism, and participating more fully in elections.

Ms. Fadiman -- an Oscar-nominated, Emmy award-winning filmmaker who has focused on issues from abortion rights to election fraud -- will attend the screening, hosted by the Peninsula Peace & Justice Center in Palo Alto.

According to a press release from Ms. Fadiman's company, Concentric Media of Menlo Park, the screening doubles as a celebration of Bill of Rights Day, which is the following day.
