Directed by Cody Lucich
Earth guardians from all four corners of the globe descend on Standing Rock, North Dakota to fight against the corporate oil giants who are destroying our earth, in the largest Native American political occupation since Wounded Knee in 1973. AKICITA chronicles the events at Standing Rock as the uprising becomes a catalyst for new life changes and rediscovery.
AKICITA ’s impact campaign will bring the story of this instrumental Indigenous uprising into our “oral history,” providing much needed truth-telling, movement and awareness building, and affirmation of the power of the people to band together to fight for their legal rights to their ancestral land, clean water and self-determination.
Any early cut of Akicita was screened at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, and the final film will be released soon.
