NewFest Film Fest: BEING THUNDER

October 17, 3:45 pm-4:15 pm

Two-Spirit teenager Sherenté Mishitashin Harris from the Narragansett tribe performs traditional dance at Pow Wows around New England, but not everyone is supportive of Sherenté’s inclusion in the ''girls'' category. BEING THUNDER is the stirring story of Sherenté’s persistence, aided by love from peers and family.

From facing biased judges to tackling college applications, Sherenté shines through as a role model for youth worldwide to go against the grain and live as their authentic selves with tenacity and grace. Director Stéphanie Lamorré’s stunning observational documentary is a rare example of a three-dimensional, Indigenous LGBTQ+ story, demonstrating the need for far more on screen representation.

Closed Captioning will be available for the virtual screening of this film
