An exceptional, powerful, and deeply moving documentary that follows the first nation’s protests against the Dakota oil pipeline construction that threatens their land, water, and existence.
Following a group of women, who emerge as powerful spokespeople for their communities, Shannon Kring’s End of the Line not only tells the story of the protests – from the community camp to demonstrations, from spiritual ceremonies to the streets of Washington DC, and beyond – but also the stories of the women and the wider history of the community, the land and the river itself.
Combining footage of the protests, interviews with the women, and a beautifully shot film of the landscape, End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock makes for essential viewing.
“Kring paints a moving, poignant portrait of courage, determination, and tenacity in the face of overwhelming odds and eloquently honours the women who serve as the protest’s oppositional foundation.” – Film Threat
