Terrific film. Important subject matter
28 January 2014 | by jeanmichel-arnoultSee all my reviews

"The Activist" combines the best of Documentary and Fiction filmmaking. I wasn't familiar with the Wounded Knee Incident before watching the film; it's maybe no coincidence that the director comes from France...

The performances are terrific, from the cops / jailers to the main characters, the two activists that get arrested during the events. Most of the action takes place inside a local jail, where tension is escalating as time passes. The jailed heroes get three surprise visits that challenge their assumptions.

In the end, we have a great film about a little-known episode of American History. Don't miss it!
