Trans Pecos Documentary: 'The Story of Stolen Land' Online Release

thu22decAll DayTrans Pecos Documentary: 'The Story of Stolen Land' Online ReleaseScreening to the worldwide viewing public on Thursday, December 22.

Event Details

Back in 2016, Deceleration was a new media concern. After a week filming at Standing Rock, we cut our teeth tripping out to Big Bend to document rising indigenous and landowner resistance to the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure across those previously largely undisturbed lands. We saw others making their way from the Standing Rock fight to indigenous-led resistance camps outside Alpine and Marfa, but also heated debate among locals about what form—if any—resistance to the Trans-Pecos Pipeline should take. Meanwhile, a larger documentary work was getting underway. The crews of what would become “Trans Pecos: The Story of Stolen Land and the Loss of America’s Last Frontier,” produced and directed by Nicol Ragland, were collecting stories and capturing events that would become a significant documentary film. It’s one that has been gaining recognition (and awards) since its first screening in February 2020.

Now that film is becoming available to the streaming public worldwide via the Trans Pecos YouTube channel on December 22, 2022. We can’t wait to see it ourselves.
