RISE is both eye-opening education and a rallying cry, inspiring audiences to get involved and truly appreciate the 500-plus year legacy of native resilience—a confrontation of the deep wounds of colonization and the consequences of reckless greed at the expense of indigenous people and the planet itself. The result is an essential documentation of one of the most urgent environmental and civil rights struggles happening today.
Continuing Sundance Institute’s longtime commitment to presenting bold stories from within the Native American and indigenous communities, the Festival debuts three episodes of this groundbreaking new series, “Apache Stronghold,” “Sacred Water,” and “Red Power,” followed by an extended Q&A.
