John Maisch’s documentary SOBER INDIAN/DANGEROUS INDIAN to screen at this year’s PLFF!

soberindianPrairie Lights is pleased to announce the documentary SOBER INDIAN/DANGEROUS INDIAN will be screening at this year’s PLFF! Here’s the synopsis:

Sober Indian | Dangerous Indian is both a story of brave men and women on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation who have found empowerment through sobriety and those still struggling to overcome their alcohol addiction. Set in the weeks leading up to the Oglala Sioux Tribe’s historic vote to repeal its ban on alcohol on August 13, 2013, the documentary follows the journey of four alcoholics living on the streets of Whiteclay, Nebraska, less than 300 yards from their homes in Pine Ridge, Southlamere Dakota. A must-see film for anyone interested in stories about beating the odds in one of the poorest places in the country, Sober Indian | Dangerous Indian explores the harmful effects of alcohol abuse on tribal reservations including high rates of fetal alcohol syndrome, cirrhosis, teen suicide, and high-risk sexual behavior.

jAdditionally, director John Maisch and Frank LaMere will be attending to participate in a Q&A session immediately after the screening of the film.
