THE SEVENTH FIRE

Directed by JACK PETTIBONE RICCOBONO
US release date: July 22, 2016

“I haven’t been law-abiding lately,” says Rob Brown, a drug dealer headed for his fifth stint in jail. Rob must reckon with his culpability as an Ojibwe Native American who has brought drug and gang culture to his own White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota. This powerful, unflinching debut feature from director Jack Pettibone Riccobono (and executive producers Terrence Malick, Natalie Portman and Chris Eyre) is a deep dive into the lives of Rob and his young protégé Kevin, and a criminal justice system that continues the centuries-long oppression of American Indians. The story is told in images: teenagers riding on the hood of a car, a dream catcher sprayed on the side of a shack, a car set ablaze under the Midwestern sky.
