LOS ANGELES – As you may know, VICELAND’s new docu-series RISE is premiering on tonight at 9:00pm EST, fresh off the World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. Check your local television to see if VICELAND is available in your area.
The series takes viewers to the frontlines of global Indigenous resistance. With two of its eight episodes chronicling the never-before-seen seeds of the historic Standing Rock Sioux protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the still-developing aftermath now that the cameras and celebrities have left, filmmaker Michelle Latimer and host Sarain Fox — both Indigenous women themselves — delve into the Indigenous resistance movement in North America to examine the social and political factors that threaten their liberation in the 21st century.
