Producers/directors Marion Lipschutz and Rose Rosenblatt talk about their documentary “Young Lakota,” along with Sunny Clifford, who’s featured in the film. It follows Sunny, a young Lakota woman who returns to the Pine Ridge Reservation with a dream to change the world around her. Her political awakening begins when the tribe’s first female president, Cecelia Fire Thunder, defies a South Dakota law banning abortion by threatening to build a women’s clinic on the reservation. “Young Lakota” is playing as part of Independent Lens on PBS on November 25, at 10:00 p.m.
