“Wounded Knee: A Line in the Sand”

wounded-knee-foxholeWhile all eyes are on Ferguson (deservedly so), here comes an exciting request on Kickstarter to complete a documentary about the Wounded Knee stand-off in 1973.  Like Ferguson, it is another story from America’s underclass of a racial struggle to be heard.  This film is produced by a man who was a 20-year old Humboldt State student at the time, who snuck past the FBI and embedded himself in the Lakota compound.  The film includes footage never before released.

Check out this great article about it and donate via Kickstarter.  Check out the 8-minute trailer at either site.

Right, a child digs a foxhole during the stand-off.

UPDATE:  Their Kickstarter campaign has met it’s goal.  Thank you to all!  I can’t wait for the film.
