This is such an important film by our friend Mark Kitchell. When I first saw this I was shocked at how political and even controversial the environmental movement (to this day) has always been. A brilliant worldwide view and perspective.
Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times)
From the Academy Award-nominated director of Berkeley in the Sixties, and narrated by Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Ashley Judd, Van Jones and Isabel Allende.
Opening March 15 in LA at the Nuart Theater, distributed by First Run Features.
