FLick Affairs

the seventh fire

Jack Pettibone Riccobono's first feature doc “The Seventh Fire“ recently had its celebrated world premiere at the Berlinale - and it's a rather intense and grim affair as it gives the audience an unfiltered look into the lives of a small reservation community in Pine Point (or P-Town), Minnesota.

“Terrence Malick presents this haunting and visually arresting nonfiction film about the gang crisis in Indian Country. When Rob Brown, a Native American gang leader on a remote Minnesota reservation, is sentenced to prison for a fifth time, he must confront his role in bringing violent drug culture into his beloved Ojibwe community. As Rob reckons with his past, his seventeen-year-old protégé, Kevin, dreams of the future - becoming the biggest drug dealer on the reservation.“
