A Good Day to Die chronicles the rise and fall of the American Indian Movement, which was founded in 1968 to advocate for the civil rights of American Indians. The movement sought redress for numerous grievances of American Indians, from forced assimilation in boarding schools to neglect from government agencies such as the Bureau of Indian Affairs. At the center of the movement was co-founder Dennis Banks, whose own involvement included armed confrontations at Custer, South Dakota and Wounded Knee, representing Banks' position as a steadfast leader for the American Indian Movement.
Directors David Mueller and Lynn Salt capture the deeply personal struggle at the root of the American Indian Movement, and tell the bittersweet and compelling story behind the American Indians' struggle for civil rights. A Good Day to Die has won Best Documentary at the American Indian Film Festival, the Grand Jury Prize at the Santa Cruz Film Festival, and Best Documentary at the International Cherokee Film Festival.
