DOCUMENTARY • 99 MINUTES • USA
Veiled Lightning weaves exclusive news coverage, original art, archival footage, and Native American informant interviews into a mosaic that explores how protest movements unfurling across the American landscape have an origin story in the First American Revolution–the Pueblo Revolt of 1680–and how that ancient battle not only informs the fight for social and environmental justice, but also casts a light on ways to thwart oppression, cultural genocide and appropriation to preserve Indigenous culture and help a nation to heal from its own tortured history.
