What would Crazy Horse do?

Passion River Films Releases "Questions for Crazy Horse," Native American Film Exploring History and Current Issues of the Lakota

Called “Imaginative, fearless” by MovieMaker Magazine Editor-In-Chief Tim Rhys, “Questions For Crazy Horse” is available on DVD 9/20/11“Questions for Crazy Horse” presents a thorough look at how the Lakota (Sioux) of South Dakota have been impacted by the life of Crazy Horse. Featuring American Indian icons Russell Means (Last of the Mohicans) and Jay Red Hawk (Deadliest Warrior), this Native American film releases on 9/20/11.

Filmmaker Oliver Tuthill travels to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, as well as the Black Hills of South Dakota, to film and research his documentary “Questions for Crazy Horse: Hypothetical Conversations with the Strange Warrior of the Oglala Lakota.” He speaks with tribe members who comment on how Crazy Horse might have felt about adversity facing the Lakota today. The most notable issue is also the longest running legal case in U.S. history: the Lakota versus the United States concerning their confiscation of the Black Hills, considered holy ground by the Lakota.
