US/Finland 2021, 87 min Director SHANNON KRING
Water cannons, tear gas, rubber bullets, vicious dogs: the frontlines of the Dakota Access pipeline protests posed grave danger, but this did not stop the Indigenous women who refused to let their land be desecrated without a fight. End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock is their inspiring story. In 2016 when the oil pipeline was rerouted through sacred indigenous sites in South Dakota, it sparked a grassroots movement aimed at halting construction and the devastation it would wreak. Director Shannon Kring’s poignant, beautifully shot portrait follows the determined women who went to battle against the United States government and big oil and became the foundation of a revolt. Throughout we witness firsthand accounts of the effects of colonization and the systemic marginalization Indigenous people still face today. But these women offer a glimpse of hope for the future in their unrelenting spirit and deep sense of sisterhood.
