Stephan Mathieu scoring documentary on South Dakota memorial sites

Stephan Mathieu is composing a score for a documentary about the link between two memorial sites in South Dakota: Wounded Knee and Mount Rushmore, which looks at the economic disparity between the two sites. The film is crowdfunding the remainder of its production costs: the shoot and a rough cut has been completed, and funds raised will go towards colour correction, sound editing and mixing. Sacred Ground is a not for profit film, and anything raised above the target will be donated to community projects in the Pine Ridge Reservation.
