Liminal Lives on Screen

The opening documentary of the 2010 Cork Film Festival was “A Good Day to Die”. Directed by David Mueller and Lynn Salt, it gives a fascinating account of the life of Dennis Banks who co-founder the American Indian Movement (AIM).

AIM set out to highlight the struggles of urban Indians in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but soon grew into a larger movement seeking civil rights and the honouring of treaties by the government of the United States.
