This Month’s Beacon Hill Meaningful Movies – It’s Free and so is the Popcorn!

Beacon Arts presents November’s Meaningful Movie, “Princess Angeline.” It will show on Friday, November 21 at 7:00 p.m. at The Garden House at 2336 15th Ave S (across from the Shell station). “Princess Angeline” is a film which tells the history of the Duwamish Tribe, Seattle’s first people. It uses the life of the daughter of Chief Seattle to examine the treatment and ultimate displacement of many of the tribes members from our city. More recent history of the tribe and their struggle for federal recognition of their tribal status is also examined. Film makers Yasu an Sandra Osawa will attend and have copies of the film for sale at a reduced price. Discussion with the Osawas will follow the screening. Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is proud to help support this series through our Neighborhood Matching Fund.
