Film: A Good Day To Die

December 12, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

A Good Day To Die (2011) | David Mueller, Lynn Salt | 93 minutes

A Good Day To Die chronicles a movement that started a revolution and inspired a nation. It recounts the life story of Dennis Banks, who in 1968 co-founded the American Indian Movement (AIM). The film provides an in-depth look at the history and issues surrounding AIM’s formation, and follows the circumstances leading to the major armed confrontations at Custer, South Dakota and Wounded Knee — climactic flashpoints which saw Banks standing steadfast as a leader for his cause.
