Little Wound’s Warriors Free Film and Discussion

November 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Join the Flyover Social Space, The Big Muddy Crew and Southern Illinois Immigrant Rights Project for a FREE film with discussion to follow hosted by Little Wound’s Warriors director, Seth McClellan.

Little Wound’s Warrior is winner of the Best Public Service award at the 41st annual American Indian Film Festival.

In this film, Native American high school students born and raised on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation are the focus of this complex and hopeful portrait by Chicago filmmaker McClellan (KING IN CHICAGO, CREATIVE WRITING). These young heirs to Lakota warriors fight personal battles in the face of poverty, alcoholism, the historical wrongs visited upon their people, and their school’s ominous epidemic of teen suicide. An intense love for the windswept vistas of the Badlands, underlined by the film’s evocative cinematography, supports their expressed newfound passion for preservation of their ancient language and heritage. In English and Lakota with English translation.*
