Good Documentary
12 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This was a very informative documentary about the connection between the American Indian Movement members and the heritage of Wounded Knee. The interviews are straightforward, not overly dramatic -- even nervous, or plainly unrehearsed; and the Indian people share their personal feelings, even bringing in the lawmen on the opposite side of the standoff to recount what they saw.

The history here is worth knowing, and I'm glad to be a part of the people who have seen this film.

If one thing struck me, even though it was not the only part of what he was saying in that sentence, it was Dennis Banks turning to the camera and saying, "Go to Wounded Knee."
