On A Knife Edge
For over 130 years, leaders of the Dull Knife family have been both warriors and peacemakers, preserving Lakota culture and defending the Pine Ridge Reservation. This feature-length documentary tells the story of Guy Dull Knife Jr. and his son George, a teenager beginning to understand what it means to encounter and fight prejudice. Now George must learn to balance being a citizen of the Lakota Nation and of the United States.
The film is inspired by Joe Starita’s Pulitzer-nominated book, The Dull Knifes of Pine Ridge.
