The Seventh Fire
From executive producers Terrence Malick, Natalie Portman and Chris Eyre comes a fascinating new documentary. When Rob Brown, a Native American gang leader on a remote Minnesota reservation, is sentenced to prison for a fifth time, he must confront his role in bringing violent drug culture into his beloved Ojibwe community. As Rob reckons with his past, his seventeen-year-old protégé, Kevin, dreams of the future: becoming the most powerful and feared Native gangster on the reservation.

- "Phenomenal... A new side of gang culture."
- "Powerful and haunting."
- "Epic...An important and timely film."
- "CRITIC'S PICK. The only genuine moments of peace in the searing documentary “The Seventh Fire” come at the very beginning: lyrical shots of headlights moving forward on a long stretch of road at daybreak. After that, the director, Jack Pettibone Riccobono, practically grabs viewers by the backs of their necks and shows them the bleak lives of two residents of Pine Point, an Ojibwe village in northern Minnesota on the White Earth Indian Reservation."
