Sitting Bull: A Stone In My Heart Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Wed, Dec 17, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

This award-winning documentary makes extensive use of Sitting Bull's own words, giving the viewer an intimate portrait of one of America's legendary figures in all his complexities as a leader of the great Sioux Nation, presents the story of an ewarrior, spiritual leader and skilled diplomat. Sitting Bull's words, as portrayed by Adam Fortunate Eagle, dominate the story. Augmented by a narrator's historical perspective, over six-hundred historical photographs and images, and a compelling original music score, the film brings to life the little-know human side of Sitting Bull as well as the story of a great man's struggle to maintain his people's way of life against an ever-expanding westward movement of white settlers. It is a powerful cinematic journey into the life and spirit of a legendary figure of whom people have often heard of but don't really know. Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Big Water Film Festival; Best Documentary Feature (second Place) Native American Voices (second place) at the Fargo Film Festival; Office Selection at Santa Barbara International Film Festival, American Indian Film Festival (San Francisco), Tiburon International Film Festival, and the Ojai Film Festival.
