CONTENDERS SEASON SCREENING
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE • UNITED KINGDOM
Post-screening conversation with Directors JESSE SHORT BULL and LAURA TOMASELLI, moderated by DON YOUNG, CAAM Director of Programming
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2 • 7:00
It is the most sacred place on earth, the birthplace of the Lakota that has shaped thought, identity and philosophy for the Očéti Šakówiŋ since time immemorial–the life-giving land known as the Black Hills. Yet with the arrival of the first Europeans in 1492, the sacred land has been the site of conflict between the people it has nurtured, and the settler state seeking to exploit and redefine it in its own image. This powerful new documentary is a searing testament to the strength of the Oyate and a visually stunning rejoinder to the distorted image of a people long shaped by Hollywood. Lakota Nation vs. United States is a lyrical and provocative testament to a land and a people who have survived removal, exploitation and genocide–and whose best days are yet to come.
Directors Jesse Short Bull, Laura Tomaselli (US 2023) 120 min.
