Standing Rock Part 2: Red Power (Michelle Latimer / Canada / 2017 / 66′) screens on Friday, Feb. 2 at 7:00pm at Conserver House, 180 Saint John St. , Fredericton.
This film delves into the evolution of the Red Power Movement and tracks past battles and re-writes history using today’s unprecedented occupation at Standing Rock. A new indigenous generation, an expression of modernity grown up on tales of occupation— from Wounded Knee to Alcatraz— arise in protest against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, a high-environmental impact pipeline designed to cut the United States from north to south.
