Using Film to Foster COMMUNITY AND CULTURE

Pamela Pierce, president and founder of the Santa Fe nonprofit Silver Bullet Productions (SBP), seems to have tapped into a magical combination of passion, progress and preservation. SBP was born out of Pierce’s desire to address a multitude of issues she saw facing the Native American communities during her time as director of the New Mexico Coalition for Charter Schools. High dropout rates, boredom and loss of culture were concerns Pierce increasingly had during her tenure.
