    Seen yesterday, the file is a little damaged in the first 10 minutes, but then it’s ok, with good quality, too.
    Anyway, this film is a strange affair, a sort of supernatural eco-vengeance legal thriller, huh? with a great Graham Greene, whom I didn’t know (now that I think about it I saw it in “Wind River”) but I will investigate.
    Thanks for putting it here, any other “forgotten” film related to the spirituality of the Native American is very very welcome

    pretty amazing film in that it doesn’t hold back on the perspective of the oppressed and how “innovation” and “economy” that is initiated in violence can only be destroyed with violence. It’s kind of like a Dark Comedy Thriller but Eco-vengeance is a solid description as well. Elder Wilf’s deadpan demeanor is hilarious and reminds me of own family. I’m sure this movie will trigger folks who aren’t ready to deal with their own issues
