Highly recommended
20 June 2009 | by ujhbrooklynSee all my reviews

I saw the film at the Indian Museum in New York City. The producer Fanny Braeuning and Roxanne Two Bulls were present, spoke about the film and themselves and answered questions. Ms. Two Bulls, whose story is recounted in the film, proved to be a personable, terrific spokesperson for her people.

The film combines with great skill the story and role of KILI radio on the Pine Ridge Reservation (which is the size of Connecticut and has no newspaper and no movie theater) and contemporary reportage about, and the consequences of, the armed stand-off between members of the American Indian Movement and federal troops in 1973. Its political and social messages are unmistakable.

The film resonated strongly with the audience, judging by the many questions and comments from audience members, several of whom identified themselves as non-American. This film is an effective teaching tool and should be shown in school and every public library.
