2017 Festival

Schedule Speakers Sponsors

Tales from Planet Earth is returning to Madison November 3-5 for its sixth festival. Standing Rock. Idle No More. The Landless Worker's Movement. Across the globe, new alliances and collective actions are rising up in the struggle for the rights and sovereignty of local peoples to determine their own futures. Come join us for this entirely free weekend, showcasing stories that inform, challenge, and inspire us to rethink relationships to land in an era when greed, corruption, and resource demands are swallowing up ancestral and customary lands, severing cultural traditions rooted in the earth, and threatening the livelihoods, sovereignty, and self-determination of communities throughout the world. Please be aware that the schedule is subject to last minute changes. All films are shown unrated. No advance tickets are required--audiences are seated first-come-first-served.
