Across the Creek offers a fresh perspective into the lives of Lakota tribal members on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Reservations. Through a mix of intimate interviews, landscape scenics, and illuminating footage of Lakota culture, the film opens a window into how the past and present converge daily. These Sioux communities struggle to balance tradition with change, honoring the wisdom of elder generations and confronting new challenges facing burgeoning youth populations. Even if you have visited an Indian reservation before, you have not experienced contemporary American Indian life quite like this.
