Saturday Cinema: Plant Power

Join us for two short films related to ¡Plantásticas!: Our Lives with Plants, a new exhibition celebrating the history and science of plants and their integral role in connecting us to our cultures and our planet.

Native to Right Here: The Plants Animals and People of Tuushtak by Joan H. Hamilton (2021, 20 min.)

This 20-minute film invites viewers to take a walk with Ohlone cultural leaders Vincent Medina and Louis Trevino in the hills below their most sacred peak, Tuushtak, aka Mount Diablo. As they point out plants and animals along the way, they discuss Ohlone history, culture, and cuisine and how Bay Area people can all celebrate what is "native to right here." 

Sponsored by Mount Diablo Interpretive Association. Videography by Wally De Young. Music by Phil Heywood. Photos by Cafe Ohlone and Scott Hein. Produced by Joan Hamilton.

Seed Mother: Coming Home by Mateo Hinojosa and Rowen

This collaborative short film combines beautiful animation and compelling documentary footage to tell the powerful story of the Seed Rematration movement among intergenerational Indigenous people. For additional information visit The Cultural Conservancy.

Showings at 1:00 and 3:00
