Passionate, compelling is how the New York Times described the documentary by Maria Florio and Victoria Mudd. Broken Rainbow presents a moving account of the forced relocation of 12,000 Navajo Indians from their land after the signing of PL. 93-531 by President Ford.
Narrated by actor Charlie Sheen Broken Rainbow tells a grim story of another forced relocation that is still unfamiliar to most Americans. In the name of progress the Federal Government and Corporate America have treated the Native Americans like sub-humans, violated their sacred lands and tried to eradicate their culture. Miraculously the Native Americans still remain to carry on the rituals and ceremonies of the past. (70 min)
