Hunger Games on the Rez: Filmmakers Plan Dystopian Pine Ridge Drama
It’s 2085 on Pine Ridge. The reservation has been quarantined and borders guarded by the military for 30 years. Sparked by the ramifications of the Keystone XL pipeline, the war between the government and the insurgency lasted for eight years and resulted in the dystopian setting that provides the background for “The People,” the inaugural project from Indigene Studios.

Wild thing about dystopia is, it’s already dystopia for someone. For Natives, it’s been dystopia since 1492. Environmental racism and injustice will lead to very dire consequences. We’ll be seeing them long before 2085.
