Pine Ridge

Loading...
"Filmed on the Native American reservation of the same name in South Dakota, where Americans with native blood live a life in the middle - and yet outside - of American society, Pine Ridge explores what shapes the lives and dreams of today's Native American youth. Depicted on their own terms during a long warm summer, Lance Red Cloud, Kassel Sky, Cassandra Warrior, her young daughter Diamond Rose, and their friends and families know one thing for sure: their future is uncertain, and it resembles their traditional way of life less and less."--Container.

One Bright Shining Moment: The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern

Loading...
When presidential candidate George McGovern took on incumbent Richard Nixon in 1972, no one really expected him to win - and he didn't. But in his bold, grassroots, seat-of-the-pants campaign, which energized young and progressive Americans to a degree never before seen, we find the genesis of today's powerful and sophisticated progressive movement. Using a wealth of amazing archival materials, interviews with provocative figures including historian Howard Zinn, and extensive interviews with McGovern himself, this "tremendously thought-provoking tribute to the one man who could have dramatically and permanently altered America's political landscape for the better [is] essential viewing" (CBS Radio). Featuring music by Bob Dylan, Robbie Robertson, Donovan, Leon Russell, and Elvis Cost [...]

No More Smoke Signals

Loading...
"Kili Radio, the 'Voice of the Lakota Nation,' is broadcast out of a small wooden house in the vast countryside of South Dakota. There, people converge to speak to the community about daily concerns and in doing so, strengthen their sense of identity. Daily existence on America's poorest reservation is hard. ... Instead of sending smoke signals the radio station transmits its own signals across a vast and magnificent landscape ... A film about the role of media, as well as an up-close look at present day life on the reservation"--Container.

Pine Ridge, USA: A Frontier of the Forgotten

Loading...
The 40,000 Sioux Lakota Native Americans living on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota are the poorest inhabitants in America.

One Bright Shining Moment: The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern

Loading...
This documentary retraces George McGovern's bold presidential campaign of 1972 - a grassroots campaign that fought for peace and justice, and positioned ideas and people first. However, what is remembered today as being the ultimate political defeat of the American Century may also have been its high watermark. The film poses this central question: what does the crushing electoral defeat of a man so well respected for his decency and intellect say about the electoral process, the American government, and more importantly, what does it say about the forces at work on the American people---then and now?

Mount Rushmore

Loading...
"One of the most unusual monuments ever created in America is the subject of this episode. Mount Rushmore was the vision of the artist Gutzon Borglum. It took over a decade and 400 people to complete the sculptures of the faces of presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln in a rocky promontory in South Dakota. Archival film footage and photographs, as well as personal accounts, illustrate the story of these portraits in stone."--Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi.
