Film Screening: Grab


Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Directed by Billy Luther, 60 minutes

Grab is an intimate portrait of the little-documented Grab Day in the villages of the Laguna Pueblo tribe, in which families annually throw water and food items from the rooftop of a home to people standing below. A community-wide prayer of abundance, thanks, and renewal, Grab Day exists at the intersection of traditional Native and contemporary Western cultures. Luther’s film follows three families as they prepare for the annual event, chronicling their lives leading up to this day.

Director Billy Luther is scheduled to appear in person.

Tickets are available online or at the box office. General admission $6, senior citizen $5, and children/students $3.
