Ever since John Trudell and a group of activists occupied Alcatraz Island in 1969, he's been making history. Trudell's an activist, poet, musician, provocateur (he says in one TV interview, "Celebrating Columbus Day for some of us is like the American people celebrating Osama bin Laden Day"), father and, some say, a prophet (actor Gary Farmer calls him "our Socrates"). The FBI has a 17,000-page dossier on him. Heather Rae spent 12 years working on this film, and it's a beauty-full of startling archival footage, dozens of interviews (with Robert Redford, Jackson Browne, Val Kilmer, Kris Kristofferson, Wilma Mankiller (former chief of the Cherokee Nation), Gary Farmer, Bonnie Raitt, Sam Shepard and others), music, poetry and visual splendor. History, still in the making.
