A Masterpiece
2 November 2011 | by items123See all my reviews

I was fortunate to be invited to a private pre-release showing in San Francisco in June 2010. Dennis flew out to show it to about 50 friends.

Its hard for me to say much about this film besides what I said to Dennis just after seeing it. "Dennis, I hope I'm not saying this because I've worked on projects with you, but it's a Masterpiece!"

This film isn't so much just about Dennis Banks, a co-founder of AIM, the "American Indian Movement", it's about the movement itself, from the children dragged off to Boarding School to the various occupations such as Wounded Knee and Alcatraz. It's a major slice of the whole rise of the "Red Power" movement.

It would be great if this could be shown to EVERY History class in Junior and Senior High School and would help greatly in reducing prejudice in young people against Indians and at the same time create an awareness in Native Americans that they have much to be proud of in their heritage.

Well done, my friend Mister Banks, as well as the Producers and Directors. You have done a great service to this country in bringing this film to the public.
