A Fierce Green Fire, the encyclopedic history of the environmental movement, by Mark Kitchell whose previous film was Berkeley in the 60s, has been picked up for U.S. VOD by Gaiam. First Run Features is doing DVD. An L.A. Tour is scheduled for September before its street date of October 1.
The film premiered at Sundance in 2012 and was developed in part at Sundance Institute and Hot Docs Forum. It was one of the first projects in the Kickstarter-Sundance partnership and the first in the Kickstarter-Hot Docs partnership.

Environmental groups like NRDC and Greenpeace and World Resources Institute have been very responsive in the social media sphere. Mark Kitchell has given his heart and soul to this film (as he did for Berkeley in the 6os) and we are proud to have been associated with him and his films over the years.
