Fresh off his recent trip to Antarctica, filmmaker Salvatore Consalvi stopped by Indie Outlook to chat about his fascinating new documentary, “Sidney Has No Horses.” The film is named after its central subject, an Oglala Lakota Medicine Man at South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation. Consalvi’s film offers a candid look at Lakota traditions and ceremonies, such as the intense “Sun Dance,” and explores the spiritual connection Sidney shares with his ancestors and nature itself. The film’s Kickstarter page can be viewed here.
The program was produced at Columbia College Chicago. Technical producers were Rebecca Nystedt and Steve Ahlman. An Indie Outlook production.
