    Mount Rushmore and Wounded Knee are both about America’s past. Only a two-hour drive apart, each site and their memories could not be more different. SACRED GROUND is a feature length documentary about what binds these two memory sites together in the past and today.

      • Sacred Ground Trailer


        from Ludwig Schmidtpeter Added 983 7 1

        Wounded Knee is empty and quiet. No visitors come to remember. Yet there would be no United States without the persecution and expulsion for which Wounded Knee has become a symbol. At the same time, millions make the pilgrimage to Mt. Rushmore each year to worship “the shrine of democracy.” What do the Native Americans think about this perennial mass tourism that is happening on their own ground? Do the visitors know that the granite spires of the Black Hills into which the presidents were carved are sacred to the Indians of the Midwest? What happens when the perspective is reversed? When a Lakota Indian becomes the director of Mt Rushmore? When white Americans stand at the sober mass grave of slaughtered Indians? How do the tourists confront the abject poverty of the victims’ descendants? How do people live with the presence of the past in the present? Is it possible for America to come to terms with its history?

          En écoutant ce morceau de musique, j'ai vu ces images dans ma tête. Hier soir à 1 heure du matin je finissais ce montage sur le thème "d'Enterre mon coeur à Wounded Knee" J'espère qu'il vous plaira. Listening to this song, I saw these pictures in my head. Last night at 1am I finished the installation on the theme of "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" I hope you enjoy it, good evening to you
