Co-hosts Western Native Voice and Northern Plains Resource Council are proud to present the Billings premiere of Murder in Big Horn, a new docuseries from Showtime about the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women epidemic that indigenous communities have been battling since colonization.
Directors Razelle Benally and Matthew Galkin, along with producers Ivy and Ivan MacDonald, craft a powerful portrait of tribal members and their communities in Big Horn County, Montana, who have lost loved ones to the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women crisis. The three-part docuseries examines the circumstances surrounding many of these cases, told solely through the perspectives of those involved: Native families, Native journalists, and local law enforcement officers.
After screening the docuseries’ three episodes, this event will feature a question and answer session with Blackfeet filmmakers Ivy and Ivan MacDonald, who produced the docuseries, journalist and advocate Luella Brien, who is featured in the series, and members of some of the families who have lost loved ones and are featured in the series.
