The project was unveiled in February at Berlin with Chastain starring as Catherine Weldon, a portrait painter from 1890s Brooklyn, who travels to Dakota to paint a portrait of Sitting Bull, and becomes embroiled in the Lakota peoples’ struggle over the rights to their land. Weldon wrote letters to the federal government on behalf of Sitting Bull and lived on the land for several years with her son.
