” Dancing With the Cannibal Giant: Five New Stories for the Great Transition is a documentary film portraying five remarkable stories of people and places transforming the world. Narrated by Penobscot elder, Sherri Mitchell (Weh’na Ha’mu Kwasset), we are introduced to the Penobscot mythology of the cannibal giant: a creature awakened by the destruction of mother earth. The film is told through the lens of this powerful prophecy: only if people can awaken to their own destruction, and the need for change, will the cannibal giant be put back to sleep.
Buckminster Fuller said, “THE BEST WAY TO PREDICT THE FUTURE IS TO CREATE IT.”
