This is the first 16 minutes of an hour -long experimental personal narrative documentary.
2008 marks the first time in the history of the world that over 50% of its population lives in cities. What does this mean for our society? What does this mean for us personally? The voices of 18 Midwest Native and non-Native American rural women are woven together in this poetic experimental personal narrative film to explore our relationship to land, land loss, loss of rural culture, how landscape shapes who we are, and possible connections between the history of land and racial strife. 17 years in the making - WOVEN is both personal and universal. It's the film-maker's journey home to explore her own connection to place while asking if changing our relationship to land is a key to both our survival and peace between peoples.
