INDEPENDENT LENS | March Point | Film Clip 4 | PBS

Duration: 04:30

www.pbs.org/independentlens/ma... In the late 1950s, two oil refineries were built on March Point, an area that was once part of the Swinomish Reservation by treaty. MARCH POINT tells the story of three boys from the Swinomish Indian Tribe who make a movie about the destruction the refineries have wrought in their community.

In this clip, three Swinomish teen filmmakers travel to Washington, DC to interview their state senator and learn about land rights.

MARCH POINT premieres Tuesday, November 18 on INDEPENDENT LENS, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, INDEPENDENT LENS is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide. Visit the Web site for more: www.pbs.org/independentlens/ma...
