with doc short Sacheen: Breaking the Silence
A matriarchal society upended by centuries of genocide and colonialism has disenfranchised the Lakota women and simultaneously reinforced their roles as the backbones of their communities and the keepers of their people’s ancient wisdom. These are the powerfully rich stories of the brave women and children living in one of the poorest places in the United States.
With exclusive access to these women’s lives over a period of three months, we recorded their stories as they re-lived some of their most traumatic experiences and let us into their daily life experiences. Along this journey, we learnt how it all came to be and heard their hopes for a brighter future. The results are honest, heart-breaking, beautiful and indispensably pertinent to understanding the world in which we live in today.
