"Native film challenges Bush again for authorizing war under the disguise of self-interest"March 30, 2007 --

CENTENNIAL, CO -- A film based on an award-winning documentary short film, "The Sand Creek Massacre", was screened at Innovation Hall, George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, on March 28, 2007. Award-winning writer/filmmaker, Donald L. Vasicek, the director and producer of the film, answered questions and discussed filmmaking with Asian, African American, Native American, Indian, and Caucasian students who are studying filmmaking and native themes.One student remarked, "The beautiful images of where the Sand Creek Massacre occurred stunned me by the reality of what happened there. I can't believe Americans are capable of ordering this kind of violence."Vasicek said, "We've used a passive approach to the telling of the brutality at Sand Creek for the purpose of showing the ignorance of utilizing killing as a means to solve problems. Violence always leaves an impact, but the graphicness of the murders, the rapes, the mutilations, even after people were dead, leaves a remarkable imprint on students, parents, and educators. They see an historic reality that motivates them to do more to circumvent violence in the present as a means to solve problems. And that includes fourth graders who viewed the film in an elementary school in Centennial, Colorado who shared their thoughts with me after the screening."A clip can be viewed and the film can be ordered for $24.95 plus $4.95 for shipping and handling at http://www.fullduck.com/node/53. Accompanying lesson plans/curriculum are also available.Vasicek's web site, http://www.donvasicek.com/, provides detailed information about the Sand Creek Massacre including various still images particularly on the Sand Creek Massacre home page and on the proposal page.Olympus Films+, LLC is dedicated to writing and producing quality products that serve to educate others about the human condition.Contact:Donald L.

I noticed Russell Means is on their advisory board, which means I cannot, in good conscience, support this museum.
