"Gathering Our Hearts at Standing Rock," Is a work in progress
documentary, by Oscar-nominated director, Fidel Moreno.
Culled from 18 hours of interviews with 33 people at Standing Rock — including youth, mothers, grandmothers, grandfathers, First Nation people and non-Indian supporters — “Gathering Our Hearts at Standing Rock” is an ongoing documentary project, chronicling the story of the Water Protectors at Standing Rock and their connection to the history of the American Indian Movement on their treaty-given lands of the American West. The portion shown will run approximately 63 minutes.

Fidel Moreno identifies as Huichol, Chichimeca and Mexican American. He is an Oscar nominee in the Best Short Documentary category as co-producer and co-director of “Wiping the Tears of 7 Generations,” and a three-time Telly
Award winner for “The Peyote Road” and “500 Nations.” Raised in both old Mexico and the Midwest area of the United States, Moreno’s work in documentary film and video since 1983 has focused on the struggle and dialogues of indigenous people and communities in Canada, the United States, Mexico and Central America. He has worked directly with many communities, aboriginal leaders, chiefs and elders in documenting environmental actions and issues, human rights violations and crisis relief services. Moreno is an activist passionate about working with youth and children through cultural literacy, skill building, emotional development and purposeful life navigation.
