If you see one documentary this year, make it ECO WARRIORS, The Documentary.
When did activism become terrorism? And why is it that America's heroes are being jailed, whereas its corporations continue to be rewarded? These questions are discussed in this timely, heartfelt and engaging documentary. The film follows the story of Portland activist Tre Arrow, who was on the FBI's Most Wanted List for his radical environmental actions, and sought asylum in Canada since he was facing life in jail.
Many important environmental leaders are featured in the film including author Derrick Jensen, activist Ruth Masters, biologist Alexandra Morton, activist and organizer Tzeporah Berman, activists Zoe Blunt and Ingmar Lee, and Mona Polacca of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Their brave stories of resistance are educating, inspiring and igniting audiences everywhere during this crucial time to take action.
50 Minutes, Colour, Stereo. Public release January 2015.
