Storyline

When a lawyer loses an appeal to stop a logging company from clear-cutting Native American land, Arthur, an Indian militant drags him and the kidnapped logging mill manager into the forest. The lawyer's empty talk about how the company's greed should be punished is put into brutal action by Arthur, who tortures the manager in allegorical ways mimicking what loggers do to the forest. Written by Thomas Pluck <stripey@winternet.com>

This film illustrates the extreme frustration Native Americans must feel with the Justice system
2 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have searched in vain for a copy of this movie for years. This story attempts to have the viewer identify with the frustration that Native Americans must feel with the casual and continual injustice by a system that is stacked against their interests.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It is creative, extremely well told and does not follow any typical mainstream formula. This movie takes you on a journey of Arthur's frustration and his tactics of dealing with those feelings. It is an unpredictable and thoroughly enjoyable movie experience.

It is a shame that this movie is so difficult to find.
