Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.
Shadowtrain will illuminate the cost of the destruction of the Native American community; to both the indigenous population as well as to their European conquerors. The documentary will reveal the qualities inherent in indigenous people’s world views that should be recognized and adopted if we all, collectively, intend to not only survive, but to find a way to live happier, more meaningful lives. While engaging a wide variety of opinions from notable activists, authors, artists, elders and shaman, politicians and government officials, clergy, teachers and everyday people, the film will reveal its message through a powerful music-driven road trip.

Rock legend George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob) and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Mark Mclaughlin are working together on "Shadowtrain: Under a Crooked Sky," a stirring documentary that explores a hybrid way of life merging modern society with the ancient practices of people who have lived in harmony with the land for thousands of years; native American Indians.
The film follows Lynch and Vincent Nicastro as they visit reservations around the American Southwest with a trailer full of gear and group of musicians to get a firsthand look at effects of consumerism on our native population and the steps they're taking towards sustainability.
