END OF THE LINE: THE WOMEN OF STANDING ROCK is the incredible story of a group of indigenous women who 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 left transformed by one of the great political and cultural events of the early 21st century.
Featuring exclusive footage including never-before-seen law enforcement video surrendered to the filmmakers by a disgraced police officer, END OF THE LINE is both an exploration of the rise of indigenous and feminine power in the areas of social and environmental justice, and a searing and deeply personal story of four brave women: Sky Roosevelt-Morris, a human rights activist in her 20’s torn between the call to action and her own need for healing; Wašté Win Young, a mother born into the American Indian Movement who, at first resisting her family heritage of activism, emerges from the trauma of Standing Rock both scarred and transformed; veteran indigenous rights activist Phyllis Young, whose example of unbowed courage and endurance serves to rally the movement to persevere in defense of Mother Earth; and LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, who emerges as an undaunted leader, despite seeing the bones of her ancestors unearthed in Dakota Access pipeline’s wanton act of destruction.
Placing the courage of the women of Standing Rock in its true historic perspective, END OF THE LINE cuts to the essence of this astonishing event — “the hearts of the women.”
