Prophecy of the Encounter 2019

Charley O. New Holy: The creation stories that were handed down to us, are part of every day life, cause they teach you a value system, they teach you the history of where we came from and also this history of where we going. In the story it mentions how we came from the stars and one day we will go back to the stars. That is always a hope.

Hither the SpaceRider transcends to earth through a solar eclipse and encounters the Lakota Horse Nation. The plot is taken from a Lakota prophecy, in which a star is coming to close to earth and the present world order is changed. Parts of the prophecy are composed into the soundtrack, told by Charley O.NewHoly. The SpaceRider connects with the children and elders of the band in a spiritual way.

Charley O. New Holy: The film plays into the part that we are in the future and the SpaceRider comes and there is nothing left here except old people and young kids and they learning how to survive. They learn how to reconnect with the earth that was something forgotten many years ago. They learn how to bring the horses back into their lives and depend on it. We were always depending on it to travel and hunt game and survive.

Fllmed at locations on the Pine Ridge Reservation in SD.
