Screening Venue: Lawrence College & Career Center
(2910 Haskell Ave.)
Director: Shannon Kring
Running time: 1 hour 27 minutes.
A group of indigenous women risk their lives to stop the Dakota Access oil pipeline construction that desecrated their ancient burial and prayer sites and threatens their land, water, and very existence. In the process, they must face the personal costs of leadership, even as their own lives and identities are transformed by one of the great political and cultural events of the early 21st century. Placing their courage in true historic perspective, END OF THE LINE goes to the essence of this astonishing event – “the hearts of the women.”
