March 8, 2007 (FPRC) -- CENTENNIAL, CO -- A new documentary film based on an award-winning documentary short film, "The Sand Creek Massacre", and driven by Southern Cheyenne and Arapaho people who tell their version about what happened during the Sand Creek Massacre via their oral histories, has been released by Olympus Films+, LLC, a Centennial, Colorado film company.

"You have done an extraordinary job" said Margie Small, Tobient Entertainment, " on the Colorado PBS episode, the library videos for public schools and libraries, the trailer, etc...and getting the story told and giving honor to those ancestors who had to witness this tragic and brutal attack...film is one of the best ways."

"The images shown in the film were selected for native awareness value" said Donald L. Vasicek, award-winning writer/filmmaker, "we also focused on preserving American history on film because tribal elders are dying and taking their oral histories with them. The film shows a non-violent solution to problem-solving and 19th century Colorado history, so it's multi-dimensional in that sense. "

Chief Eugene Blackbear, Sr., Cheyenne, who starred as Chief Black Kettle in "The Last of the Dogmen" also starring Tom Berenger and Barbara Hershey and "Dr. Colorado", Tom Noel, University of Colorado history professor, are featured.

The trailer can be viewed and the film can be ordered for $24.95 plus $4.95 for shipping and handling at http://www.fullduck.com/node/53.

Vasicek's web site, http://www.donvasicek.com, provides detailed information about the Sand Creek Massacre including various still images particularly on the Sand Creek Massacre home page and on the proposal page.
