Filmmakers Jack Riccobono & Chris Eyre on 'The Seventh Fire'

Hosted by

Filmmaker Jack Riccobono was an obvious outsider when he started filming gang life on the White Earth Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota. He got access thanks to Rob Brown, one of the film's subjects and the veteran of numerous incarcerations. Riccobono and producer and Native American filmmaker Chris Eyre talk about the making of their documentary, The Seventh Fire, and the challenge of getting their film into the marketplace, even with backers including Natalie Portman, Terrence Malick and former Sumner Redstone girlfriend Sydney Holland.
