An Amazing Film!
I wish that I could even find words to describe what this film means to me. For me, it was one of the most influential films I have ever seen as an artist, a person, as a spirit. John Trudell’s wordshis very being are so strong in this film and Heather and her team did an amazing job of giving him to the world. The film is beautiful, passionate, inspirational, raw, real, and true. The power of this film is born from the love that the filmmakers put into it. It is an extension of each individual involved and it speaks not only the audience as a political film with an agenda- but as a spiritual film- a film that touches each individual in a unique way. From the first scene with John on the hillside, this film touched my heart and held onto it until the very end. Congratulations you guys!!!
A Story that needs to be heard
John Trudell and his work have been a profound personal and political inspiration to me since I first heard his poetry as a high school student 15 years ago. He has – along with many other activists and important leaders- helped to shape my political consciousness and inspire me to look at the world from a different perspective than what I was raised with.
Heather Rae’s film is a wonderful telling of the story not only of Trudell’s life and philosophy/politics, but also an important part of the history of the United States and the struggles of indigenous peoples to survive. It is a history that has gone overlooked and diminished for FAR too long and deserves to be told by those who lived it rather than those who sought (and continue to seek) to destroy it.
I extend my heart felt thanks to both Heather Rae and John Trudell for bringing this important film to light.
