    Custer's Last Stand: American Experience On June 26, 1876, near the Little Bighorn River in Montana Territory, General George Armstrong Custer ordered his soldiers to drive back a large army of Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. The battle pitted two larger-than-life antagonists against one another: Sitting Bull, the charismatic and politically savvy leader of the Plains Indians, and George Armstrong Custer, one of the Union's greatest cavalry officers and a man with a reputation for often reckless courage. By days end, Custer and nearly a third of his army were dead. This biography of one of the most charismatic and contradictory American leaders of the 19th century takes viewers on a journey from Custer's memorable, wild charge at Gettysburg that turned the tide of that battle, to his lonely, untimely death on the windswept plains of the West. Along the way, viewers learn how, time and time again, the supremely ambitious son of a blacksmith ricocheted from triumph to disaster, from battlefield heroism to impetuous escapade. In the end, Custer's reputation was saved by the wife he adored, who almost single-handedly turned the Battle of the Little Bighorn into one of the most iconic events in American history and mythologized Custer's role. duration 1:55:46   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 5:00 am
    Sitting Bull: A Stone In My Heart 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. duration 56:00   STEREO TVG
