Standing Rock Take Me From The River (USA, 29 min)
Directed by Denny Rauen
For many citizens a line had been crossed leading to thousands from across the political spectrum to travel to Standing Rock to say STOP! The film follows the experience of a few of those citizens. The journey into water protecting documents the Standing Rock Sioux struggle in North Dakota to protect their water and sacred sites based on Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851 and 1868. The film gives you a glimpse into our future, and current struggle with oil and government interests set on profit over indigenous rights and threats to the environment.
