Bright Lights:End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock

Free Event

Co-presented with the Boston Women's Film Film Festival, the Roxbury International Film Festival and the Living on Earth Podcast

Directed by Shannon Kring

A group of indigenous women risk their lives to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which jeopardizes their land, water and entire way of life. Despite the desecration of their ancient burial and prayer sites, violent confrontations, and limited resources, these women refuse to back down. Calls for change reverberate nationally as the women of Standing Rock lead a tireless effort to defend their right to clean water and rich heritage.
