Filmfest 2006

An impressionistic biopic, weaving images, thought, music and human energy into cinematic power... Viewers journey in and out of modern Indian history and politics, exploring the earth-infused philosophy and motivations of Trudell's radical acts and thought, as well as reliving the loss and heartache that prompted his activism to evolve abrupt into artistic expression. Complementing Rae's stunning images are Trudell's poetic musings, set to electric guitars and drumbeats echoing from the earth and blurring lines between the conscious and the unconscious. Bird Runningwater, 2005 Sundance Film Festival
