Woman Walks Ahead - Film
Ended September 21

Based on true events, this gorgeously textured 1880s period drama tells the story of Catherine Weldon (Jessica Chastain), a widowed artist from New York who traveled alone to North Dakota to paint a portrait of Chief Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes, a magnetic Plains Cree actor). 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.
