MARCH POINT tells the story of three boys from the Swinomish Indian Tribe who make a movie about the destruction the refineries have wrought in their community. In this clip, three Swinomish teen filmmakers travel to Washington, DC to interview their state senator and learn about land rights. MARCH POINT premieres Tuesday, November 18 on INDEPENDENT LENS, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films.
