A son tries to understand his father's choices.
27 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

TATANKA is a personal documentary about the life of an important, yet little know, activist from the 1960's. Tatanka, the main character, worked alongside Cesar Chavez in obtaining rights for farmer workers in California in the 60's. He was there at the beginnings of Amnesty International. He worked as a political organizer with people like Joan Baez and David Harris. But the film goes way beyond the surface of Tatanka's life and shows the cost that this important, yet all consuming work had on his family. The film, made and narrated by his son, follows Tatanka's present day struggle in our capitalist world and where he does and does not fit in. He continues to follow his dreams despite living in a world that has moved on from these ideals. This documentary is both entertaining and deeply moving. Anyone who lived through this time or has parents who did will especially enjoy the story. But it's also a genuine look at this important time in American History that is often glossed over. Highly recommended.
