FRONTLINE "Kind Hearted Woman"

Apr 1, 2013

In a special two-part series, acclaimed filmmaker David Sutherland has created an unforgettable portrait of Robin Charboneau (now Robin Poor Bear), a 32-year-old divorced single mother and Oglala Sioux woman living on North Dakota's Spirit Lake Reservation.  Sutherland followed Robin over three years as she struggled to raise her children, further her education, and heal herself from the wounds of sexual abuse she suffered as a child.  Sutherland and Poor Bear joined Dakota Midday Monday to discuss "Kind Hearted Woman," a special co-presentation of FRONTLINE and Independent Lens.  It airs Monday from 8:00-10:00 p.m. Central and Tuesday from 8:00-11:00 p.m. Central on SDPB-TV.
