Descripción del producto
Based on true events, WOMAN WALKS AHEAD tells the story of Catherine Weldon (Jessica Chastain), a widowed artist from New York who, in the 1880s, traveled alone to North Dakota to paint a portrait of Chief Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes). Her arrival at Standing Rock is welcomed with open hostility by a US Army officer (Sam Rockwell), who has stationed troops around the Lakota reservation to undermine Native American claims to the land. As Catherine and Sitting Bull grow closer, and as their friendship-and his life-are threatened by imperious government forces, Catherine must contend with the violence that underlies her position.

Based on real events, the film tells the story of Caroline (Catherine?) Weldon, a painter and Indian rights activist from New York, who sets forth to the Standing Rock Reservation in order to paint Sitting Bull's portrait. She lives among the Sioux and soon gains a trusting relationship with Sitting Bull. This happens during a critical time for the Sioux. The American government attempts to implement the Dawes Act, in order to expropriate large portions of the Great Sioux Reservation for white settlement. Weldon, who is a member of the National Indian Defence Association joins in the protest against the government, and the conflict ends with Sitting Bull's death and the Wounded Knee massacre.
Woman Walks Ahead is of course not a documentary, but the central plot is based on real events. The film is beautifully shot and well executed in every department, and the acting is flawless.
The film is rather slow paced, which suits the imagery of the dry and rather desolate expanses of the Great Plains. There is not many action scenes, but the drama lies in the developing relationships between the characters set against the backdrop of political upheaval for the Sioux tribe.
The blu-ray disc contains no extra material, which is a shame, and this is the reason who I give it 4 stars and not 5.
They did not deserve what was done to them. Only one name can be used and that is GENOCIDE.
The white population of America should hang their head in shame for what their predecessors did and in many ways still goes on today.
