I was so touched by this film, crying through a lot of it. I felt such a sadness for the Lakota people and an emptiness. The women are beyond courageous. I am left with such an admiration for their determination and courage, and a great desire to learn more about the Lakota and to find out how I can help. The filming and photography was breathtaking. This film will be instrumental in educating and bringing awareness to our nation and the world. Congratulations to Deborah Anderson!

The movie: This movie is so very well done in how it beautifully expresses our indigenous sisters & brothers feelings! This movie comes from the heart. It’s clear that it was a labor of love by all involved. Coming more from the head regarding history, i.e. a linear line of thought, is YT’s “Red Cry.” The issue: It is unspeakably difficult to absorb yet another film that reminds us “White/US Citizens” (thanks SunRose) again of the black sin that we laid upon our fellow human beings of the Earth.Yet in its own special way this movie has found a way of helping - all of us - heal from this incredibly dark period. Being that it is still happening today I, personally, am trying to get my head wrapped around these lyrics, “Mothers (Sisters, Brothers) of the earth ascend Be amongst us Be there not afraid” These women are ascending, they’re here, and they are not afraid! May we all ascend, stand up, and be who we were created to be - like the courageous women in this movie.
