Filmmaker bikes 1,000 miles for 10,000 signatures

Miho Aida visited Alaska in 2010 to learn more about native women’s roles in the outdoors. What she left with was the realization that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a sacred place to the Gwich’in Nation.

With some film clips, and the hope of making a positive impact, Aida and a group of friends created “The Sacred Place Where Life Begins: Gwich’in Women Speak.” This 20-minute film has been shown at several venues and film festivals across the United States, with its debut at the London Film Festival.

The film received the Audience Choice Award at Boston’s 2014 Earth Port Film Festival, and also was nominated for Best Documentary Short at San Francisco’s 2013 American Indian Film Festival.

Now biking from Seattle to San Francisco, Aida will be in Davis this month, just in time to attend a screening of the film from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 16, at International House, 10 College Park.

After the film, a discussion will be held and a petition passed around calling to permanently save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil drilling. Once 10,000 signatures are collected, the petition will be sent to Congress, which then is required to act. Participants also will have the opportunity to write a letter to senators.

Those who you cannot attend the film screening are invited to visit www.mihoaida/gwichin to learn more about the film, to sign petitions in support of permanently saving ANWR from oil drilling, and to donate to the bike film tour on Indiegogo.
