The Film

A symphony inspired by the Lewis and Clark expedition brings together two individuals from different worlds: Rob Kapilow, a celebrated composer trying to breathe new life into classical music, and Darrell Robes Kipp, a Blackfeet Indian writer fighting to save his language from extinction. Summer Sun Winter Moon tells the story of how their unexpected collaboration creates a unique work of art from the perspective of American Indians today.
