1 pm | Kind Hearted Woman

2012, 120 minutes, directed by David Sutherland

Director David Sutherland is expected to attend. Panel discussion follows.
This world premiere features the first segment of a Frontline series that illuminates the epidemic of child sexual abuse on Native American reservations and some tribes' failure to protect those children. Filmmaker David Sutherland (Country Boys and The Farmer's Wife) profiles the story of Robin Charboneau, a 32-year-old divorced single mother and Oglala Sioux woman living on North Dakota's Spirit Lake Reservation. Charboneau's quest to heal her family, find a new man, earn a degree in social work and return to her reservation to help prevent future abuse leads her on a journey of discovery, heartbreak and ultimate redemption.
