Trudell - The Movie Trailer

Powerful, seering, authentic and unforgettable are just a few words to describe this 4 & 1/2 star rated movie.

In 1979, while protesting the US government's policy on American Indian affairs, John Trudell burned an American Flag on the steps of FBI headquarters in Washington DC. Within a matter of hours his pregnant wife, three children and mother-in-law were killed in a suspicious fire on a Nevada reservation. This ended his role in the movement, but his voice would not be silenced.

From the late 1960’s occupation of Alcatraz Island to the current international stage of politics and performance, Heather Rae’s provocative and poignant film reveals the essence of a true American original.
