“Beyond Standing Rock” takes a close look at the controversy behind the Dakota Access Pipeline and the collision of forces that inspired broad protests.
“We have been trying to promote community discussion and conversation,” said Elizabeth Loos, a field organizer at the Dakota Resource Council.
Following the screening there will be a panel discussion that includes Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council Member Chad Harrison, Inside Energy reporter Amy Sisk and Dakota Resource Council organizer Nicole Donaghy.
“Beyond Standing Rock” was directed and edited by independent filmmaker Brian Malone, who has worked with Inside Energy previously. “It’s one thing to see it on a little two-dimensional television screen,” said Malone. “To be there, be in the camp and see all this stuff actually happening, that experience was pretty impactful for me.”
The film was released Feb. 23 and was produced by Leigh Paterson and Alisa Joyce Barba of Rocky Mountain PBS News.
