THE BUFFALO HUNT is an intimate and visceral portrait of one of the most extreme places in the Western Hemisphere—the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota.  Using a sacred Buffalo Hunt as a jumping off point, the film takes the viewer on an emotional journey into the neighborhoods and homes of the Lakota.

“Di Fiore and his crew turned their attention to traditional buffalo hunts…conducted no interviews…didn’t seek outside experts to explain anything.  Instead, detailed shots…became the window to larger stories…”-Associated Press.

The documentary has won awards around the world and The New York Times hailed THE BUFFALO HUNT as “a striking, poetic look at the Lakota Sioux”.

Now streaming on Prime Video.
