The Bell Rang to an Empty Sky

This film has taken one of the many tragedies buried in American history which befell the American Indian and through the voice of Dennis Banks, creates a tight and perceptive visual and aural telling and interpretation of the events. The selection of images, their iconography and meaning, effectively explored through juxtaposition, creates a powerful work. (John Hanhardt, Curator of Film and Video, Guggenheim Museum of Art, New York, N.Y.)

16mm, color, sound, 6 minutes. 1976-77
