Village Earth premiered its documentary on life and grassroots community development on the Pine Ridge Reservation, titled “Pine Ridge: Session One,” last night to a packed audience at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins. Filmed and Directed by Ralf-Kracke Berndorff of Reflexive Films the documentary explores life and community-based development in one of the poorest counties in the United States. Through grassroots community action, traditional families called “tiyospayes” are pursuing their vision to reclaim, restore, and utilize their remaining land-base.
