Pine Ridge

Join Indievents and Club David Wednesday, August 5th, for the South Dakota Premiere of the documentary Pine Ridge.

Pine Ridge is a European made documentary profiling the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Directed by Swedish-born director Anna Eborn. It made its world premiere at The Venice Film Festival in 2103, and in 2014 it won The Dragon Award for Best Nordic Documentary at the Göteborg Film Festival. It has had very little screenings in the US. Now is your chance to see it screened in Sioux Falls!

Nineteen year old Bert sits in the shade of a tree in Yo Park. Cassandra Warrior feeds her daughter Diamond Rose. Daniel Runs Close sweats under the sun at Wounded Knee Memorial site. Kassel Sky Little puts his boots on at the Waters Rodeo. Vanessa Piper is alone in the middle of Badlands. Lance Red Cloud hangs out behind the gas station at night. It is summer and they all live here, at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, USA.

"the camera utilizes stunning perspectives to showcase its characters. If Malick shot a documentary, it would look like this." - Way Too Indie

"If life is structured around opposites then Eborn captures a snapshot of the scope of the interaction of people within their society, but also the scope of human nature." - Flux Magazine

"A remarkable rendition of the human condition. Amazing." - Next Projection

"A gritty portrait of the American hinterland" - Hollywood Reporter

The screening will be held at Club David in Sioux Falls on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, and will begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are only $8 in advance and $12 at the door.
