“Crossing the Divide” Documentary

A film crew captured this story from the 2017 Climate Justice Unity March.

A reactionary Iowa farmer has a change of heart when climate activists march into his tiny town.

Disrespect is poisoning American society, jeopardizing informed debate and destabilizing democracy. This is a story about how two groups on either side of the political divide get caught up in a firestorm of disrespect, sparked by a Confederate flag and an attack video funded by a pipeline company. Then, almost miraculously, they find common ground. Their unlikely alliance shows how hard it is to change entrenched beliefs yet how important it is to try.

Run time: 15:29

    I’m Josie Ironshield from Standing Rock and wish the people would see how we are destroying the earth… I believe our climate is in trouble, by doing all we, I can do I’m on board. As for the water, well being from Standing Rock, there has been leaks.
    I worry about my nation having to drink, bath in the water that has a time bomb ready to go off. All these pipeline are arteries that are spreading all through the us, the world, carrying poison… So if I my endures struggle on this march, then so be it bc I’m feeling what mama earth is going through everyday… we all need to start healing the earth
