Trudell (Introduced by Sage Trudell and director Heather Rae)
Preceded by the music video for Time Dreams

This intimate portrait of poet and American Indian Movement leader John Trudell is the result of 12 years of extensive research and features interviews and archival footage. He passed away in 2015, and the screening pays tribute to his life and influence. The Boston Globe called him “a tenacious peace warrior whose frankness [was] his greatest weapon.” 2005, US, 80 min.

Serving as a grace note to Trudell’s life of inspiration, activism, and preservation of the human spirit, this video is the result of a collaboration between John Trudell , Missy Whiteman of Independent Indigenous Film and Media, and the musicians. It’s the closing track on the Pines’ 2016 album "Above the Prairie."
