A new film about Standing Rock is set to debut at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and it has some great people on board.


As reported in Colorlines:

Josh Fox, who shed light on the impacts of fracking in his documentary Gasland and its sequel, Gasland 2, is directing this film alongside James Spione (“Silenced”) and Myron Dewey, who owns Digital Smoke Signals, a social media film company that tells stories through indigenous eyes. Actress Shailene Woodley (“Big Little Lies”) is the film’s executive producer.

Watch the trailer for the film below:

And if you can't make it to the film festival, no worries. Lucky for us, the film will be streamed online starting April 22nd!

Per the film's website:

“Like the Standing Rock direct actions, our distribution model will be in direct service to the fight. Rather than charging for the film in a traditional way, audiences will be able to donate any amount they want (between $1-100) to stream the film online from April 22 to May 6. All proceeds will go to an Indigenous Media Fund and a Pipeline Fighters Fund supervised by the film’s creators and a council of indigenous leaders to support direct actions and indigenous filmmakers and journalists.”
