Through the eyes of a traditional Lakota Medicine Man, the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation becomes another world, "the world behind this one . . .”

What began as a character study of a complicated, mystical, Oglala Lakota medicine man became a slow motion collision of the modern and indigenous minds. We did not anticipate getting a second interview let alone performing the Vision Quest and Sun Dance, the ancient rituals of suffering and gratitude.

 

And now, field production is complete. A four-year investigation of the indigenous world in modern America is ready for editing, scoring, and animation.
