KIND HEARTED WOMAN

THE PLOT THUS FAR

This film follows Robin Charboneau, a magnetic 31-year-old Oglala Sioux woman living on the Spirit Lake Reservation in North Dakota. In sharing her story, this documentary will portray the realities of what it means to be a contemporary Native American woman living in two worlds. A co-presentation of FRONTLINE and INDEPENDENT LENS.

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“Kind Hearted Woman” is a pretty strong release that shows off what it is like to be a Native American woman in the modern world. However, I don’t get why the documentary had to be five hours long. I got all I needed by hour three, but I guess PBS had time to fill. That being said, Robin is fascinating woman that shows how far gender roles have yet to come in certain societal segments. But, there is progress. That slim glimmer of hope is what will help get you through this series.

The DVD comes with extended interviews as the special features. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp for standard definition. However, there are minor moments of digital noise. The Dolby  track supports the dialogue and that’s all that matters for a documentary like this. I’d recommend a purchase to the curious.

RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW!
