A feature-length documentary film by #UnicornRiot

Black Snake Killaz is a feature-length 2 hr. documentary film about the resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

 https://www.unicornriot.ninja/black-snake-killaz-2017 - free video -

This film explores actions taken by water protectors to stop the construction of the oil pipeline and highlights actions taken by law enforcement, military, and corporate mercenaries to quell the months-long protest. Black Snake Killaz timelines the historical events that unfolded in Standing Rock throughout 2016 and brings you the raw experience from many frontline actions to protect the water. Although the Dakota Access Pipeline is completed, the impact of the movement will be long-lasting. As fossil fuel extraction projects continue to impact some of the most vulnerable communities throughout the United States of America, the importance of the water protectors story grows.
