I saw this video documentary only once on PBS, but I recall it as being a very effective 58 minute video on the plight of the American Indian. As you watch it, you feel empathy for the individuals who attempt to raise themselves up out of the despair and satisfaction for the few who actually achieve this. The most interesting part is when one Indian, who has cleaned up his life, watches as the house of his brother is busted by the cops for having an out of control alcohol party. The conclusion of the documentary almost seems to be that leaving the "rez" (reservation) is only solution to leaving the problems behind.
I wish it was available to see and I wish the filmmakers or someone would upload it to you tube so that it was available to watch. Though it is several years old by now, I'm sure it is still sadly relevant.
