Grantee News From One Million Bones:

One of the things that is most important to us in wrapping up One Million Bones is to be able to share with you and the over 150,000 people who participated in the project what the installation on the National Mall looked like. Your efforts, and those of your students, classmates, family members and friends, are what made One Million Bones possible. The 20 minute film that has been created, and that we are so happy to be able to share with you, is our way of honoring your work, your compassion, and your effort on behalf of peace and justice in the world.

Please watch it.  Please share it.  Please screen it for your classroom, friends and family. Above is a link to the trailer.  If you’re interested in making it a public event, we’re happy to provide whatever support we can so that you can do a community screening.  We have a press release template, and posters that you can print out.   If you’re doing a public screening, you can contact us to decide the best way to share the film with your audience. By sharing it widely, you can help us thank and honor everyone who participated and continue to raise awareness of the ongoing genocides and mass atrocities. We’re planning our Albuquerque screening for Sunday, May 4th. We suggest you schedule public screenings the same day, and school screenings on Monday, May 5th.  Of course, whenever you can screen it is fine, we’d just love to create a buzz! You can email us and let us know the best way for you to access the film, and how we can help.

We are so very grateful to Sarah Skibitzke-Donnell and Bryan Donnell who volunteered tirelessly for months leading up the installation to film around the country, and then spent more than a week filming with us on the National Mall. They have created a beautiful and meaningful film that captures both the project and the installation, and we thank them!
