The Sacred Run

Documentary latest in Movie That Matters series

On Friday, June 24, producer and director Andrea Sadler will present her 2001 documentary film, The Sacred Run, the lotus and the feather, in a screening at First Presbyterian Church of Beacon as part of the ongoing Movies That Matter series.

The film follows American Indian leader Dennis Banks and First Nation people from North America and Japan, along with volunteers from 13 countries, on a ceremonial run to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Sadler joined the run with camera in hand to share the physical and spiritual journey of this diverse group, which traveled 4,000 kilometers along the Sea of Japan to promote the message that all life is sacred.

“The film is about the interconnection of all life and the importance of connecting to the Great Spirit, whatever that means to you,” said Sadler, who will be at the screening for a Q&A. “We are greater than we are conditioned to believe.”

The screening begins at 7:30 p.m. The church is located at 50 Liberty St. For more information, visit
