It was horrifying to hear the news out of Standing Rock, North Dakota, last November when the Morton County police sprayed the crowds with tear gas and water during below-freezing temperatures. The citizens of Standing Rock Sioux Nation began gathering last spring in an attempt to stop a natural gas pipeline operator from bulldozing sacred sites. Oscar-nominated and Telly Award-winning filmmaker Fidel Moreno has been documenting the event and will screen this work-in-progress at Aurora Picture Show. The director will be in attendance and can answer questions after the hour-long screening; a traditional water ceremony also will be performed. Admission is pay what you wish and donations will benefit the Standing Rock community and also help with completion of the film.
