How to Watch

End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock is preceded by the short film No More Blues (On This Land Where We Belong), directed by Keri Pickett.

In 2016, members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe established a camp called Sacred Stone with the intent of stopping the Dakota Access oil pipeline, which desecrated ancient burial and prayer sites. Director Shannon Kring filmed the epic story of the Indigenous women who led this peaceful rebellion.

When Dakota Access bulldozed the peaceful protestors, and police attacked with dogs and pepper spray, over 10,000 protesters were on site, including Kring, who followed these events with her camera for four years. The film features interviews with many Indigenous leaders such as Sky Roosevelt-Morris, an activist in her 20s, and Phyllis Young, a member of Standing Rock who has been an activist for four decades. Featuring shocking, never-before-seen footage of the brutality the activists faced, as well as poignant stories of their resistance, End of Line is a must-see documentary. “End of the Line… is an absolutely beautiful film.” --Sarah Boslaugh, The Arts St. Louis
