End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock focuses on a group of Indigenous women who unexpectedly became the leaders of the global movement against the construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline. In September 2016, members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe issued a call for help in their protest against the pipeline, whose proposed route would endanger their ancestral land, water, and entire way of life. More than 10,000 people answered the call and joined their protest, including director Shannon Kring. Kring follows four women–Sky Roosevelt-Morris, Wašté Win Young, Phyllis Young, and LaDonna Brave Bull Allard–as they navigate their new leadership roles amidst radical identity transformations. This screening will be followed by a community conversation led by Missouri River Relief, exploring topics such as the intersection of the Dakota Access oil pipeline and the Missouri River, Indigenous-led climate activism, and female leadership.
