West Coast Premiere – a young Cherokee lawyer confronts her grandfathers’ ghosts

Special MarinArts Discount Code: MARTS30

Sovereignty follows Sarah Ridge Polson, a young Cherokee lawyer fighting to restore her Nation’s jurisdiction as she confronts the ever-present ghosts of her grandfathers.

With shadows stretching from 1830s Cherokee Nation (now present-day Georgia) through Andrew Jackson’s Oval Office, along the fateful Trail of Tears, to the Cherokee Nation in present-day Oklahoma—Sovereignty travels the powerful intersections of personal and political truths; bridging our country’s distant past and imminent future.

By Mary Kathryn Nagle
Directed by Jasson Minadakis
