From Standing Rock to the Red Power Movement: New Series "RISE" Focuses on Indigenous Resistance

We speak with the filmmakers behind "RISE," a new Viceland series that examines indigenous resistance past and present, from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation’s resistance to the Dakota Access pipeline to "Red Power," which looks at past indigenous resistance and the evolution of the Red Power Movement. Michelle Latimer is a Toronto-based filmmaker, programmer, actor and activist of Métis and Algonquin descent. Sarain Carson-Fox is an Anishinaabe artist, activist and the host of the series. The RISE series airs on Fridays at 10 p.m. EST.
