Killing the Black Snake 

When: Sun., April 2, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: $5

The protests at Standing Rock Indian Reservation over the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline reached an awful pitch at the end of 2016. The attendant images of protesters being doused by water cannons in freezing weather suggested a horrific update of civil rights protesters suffering the blasts of firehoses in the sixties. Yet with the daily barrage of election-related bombshells and the remoteness of the action itself, and in absence of a definitive account of the events, who can say with precision what happened there? The documentary Killing the Black Snake: Behind the Scenes of the NDPAL# Struggle, from anarchist media-production group subMedia, investigates this from a radical perspective. Assembled by anarchists who took part in the protests, the documentary provides inside details about the internecine conflicts among the protesters over tactical matters along with an analysis of the forces behind the rise of resistance groups in an America where, increasingly, people believe their rights are under attack. —David Klein
