Poet, musician, orator, actor, activist, and American hero, John Trudell has been fearless in confronting the difficult realities of our history and culture. Trudell was a leader of the American Indian Movement and, more recently, one of rock-and-roll's most distinctive talents. Filmmaker Heather Rae skillfully weaves together archival footage, impressionistic scenes, a deeply affecting soundtrack, and interviews with Kris Kristofferson, Robert Redford, Jackson Browne, and Gary Farmer, who calls Trudell “our Socrates.”
Conversation to follow with Heather Rae and Sage Trudell (Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe), moderated by Justin Mugits, National Museum of the American Indian.","additional_description":"
