In this follow-up work to the award-winning bio-doc “White Balloon,” director and writer Nihad Ademi provides his moving account of the Seven Sacred Laws as important guideposts to inspire our conduct as human beings and bring us back into a relationship with Mother Earth. Featuring breathtaking footage of the prairie landscape and interviews with Indigenous elders, Dave Courchene Jr. and Florence Paynter, Seven Sacred Laws helps us to redefine who we are and where we are going in this age of growing conflict, dislocation, and environmental calamity.

A Q&A with filmmaker Nihad Ademi and Elder Dave Courchene will follow the screening of the film.
