Independent Lens

March Point

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
This program follows the journey of three teens from the Swinomish Tribe who have been asked to make a film about the threat their people face from two local oil refineries. In the late 1950s, two refineries were built on March Point, an area that was once part of the Swinomish reservation by treaty. This is the story of the boys' awakening to the destruction these refineries have wrought in their communities. Ambivalent environmental ambassadors at the onset, the boys grapple with their assignment through humor, sarcasm and a candid self- knowledge. But as their filmmaking evolves, they experience the need to understand and tell their stories, and the power of this process to change their lives.
