Honor the Treaties is a documentary short about photographer Aaron Huey’s work on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Charting his movement from journalist to advocate, the film details Aaron’s recent collaboration with artists Shepard Fairey and Ernesto Yerena. Ultimately, the film questions outsider’s abilities to tell accurate stories about poverty, exploitation, and history. The film will premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival, opening night for ShortsFest, May 24th. Directed by Eric Becker (weareshouting.com). Photography by Aaron Huey (aaronhuey.com).
First showing is May 24 at 7PM at the Seattle International Film Festival
