'Red Lake' documentary focuses on recovery

BEMIDJI—Many people who meet Missy Dodds want to hear about one thing: what happened to her on March 21, 2005. That was the day a 16-year-old Red Lake High School student entered her classroom and killed a teacher and three students, leaving Dodds alive but traumatized.

When Dodds met documentary filmmaker Billy Luther, however, she knew he was different. http://www.bemidjipioneer.com/news/4062287-red-lake-documentary-focuses-recovery...
