FREE FOR UWM STUDENTS AND UNION CINEMA MEMBERS

Beyond Standing Rock takes us on a journey across three modern stories about the fight for energy, environment, and tribal sovereignty in America. It investigates the controversy behind the Dakota Access pipeline and the collision of forces that inspired broad protests. The documentary shines a spotlight on tribal sovereignty issues and a 170-year-long conflict with the U.S. government over independence and control of resources. Post-film discussion with Sky Hopinka (Ho-Chunk/Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians), UWM faculty and local filmmaker.

Cosponsored by Student Involvement and American Indian Student Services.
