The Activist | 2014
On February 27, 1973, eighty years after the Wounded Knee massacre, the place again became the theater of a confrontation between the federal authorities and the activists of the American Indian Movement. During the insurrection, Native American activists Marvin and Bud are arrested and thrown in jail. There, two officers monitor their every move and join forces with a young lawyer assigned to their case. Why does a Nixon representative visit them in jail? And a senator? And a Hollywood star? What is Nixon's role? And what secret was Marvin's wife hiding before she died in an accident?
