We Are The Warriors

A small Maine town decides the fate of its American Indian mascot after facing public allegations of racist behavior at a high school ootball game.


Directed by David Camlin, Megan Grumbling

David Camlin is an independent filmmaker, editor, and video producer who is drawn to stories about human connection. His more recent work as an editor includes Welcome to Commie High (2020), a feature length documentary about the founding and legacy of an alternative public high school with an hour long PBS version that has been aired more than 1,400 times across 80% of national PBS stations. El Lobo y La Paloma (2019) is a flamenco inspired live performance about loss, grief, and our connection to the spiritual world. The film and accompanying educational material is currently available in corrections facilities nationwide via the tablet based learning system Edovo, and through online and theatrical screenings. After nearly twelve years of continually producing and editing independent documentary films, David is looking forward to a few months of downtime before finding his next project.

Megan Grumbling is a writer, editor, teacher, and writing mentor. She earned her Master’s Degree in cultural reporting at New York University, and since then has written regularly about film, theater, and social issues for the Portland Phoenix, Dispatch, The Chart and other journals. Her recent publications include Persephone in the Late Anthropocene, a collection of poetry exploring environmental crisis and the nature of story itself; and Booker’s Point, an oral history-inspired portrait-in-verse about an old Maine woodsman and his home on Ell Pond. She also wrote and co-directed the short film Carrying Place, an allegory about cultural amnesia that was featured as part of Best of the Maine International Film Festival and screened on Maine Public Television; and she shares writer-director credit on the immersive film installation She Dives Down, about the fluid nature of narrative.
