Salt Lake City, UT – The 2009 Sundance Film Festival gets underway today, and we begin our coverage with award-winning producer Stanley Nelson. His latest documentary premieres Friday in the festival's Spectrum Category. It's called "Wounded Knee" and it explores the 1973 stand-off at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Nelson joins Doug to talk about the American Indian Movement - and what the 71-day siege means in American history.
- Wounded Knee premieres Friday, January 16th at 2:30 p.m. at the Holiday Village Cinema in Park City. For other show times, click here
