Environment: "A Fierce Green Fire" (film)
From the Academy Award-nominated director of "Berkeley in the Sixties," AFGF is narrated by Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Ashley Judd, Van Jones, and and Isabel Allende.
Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this award winning Sundance documentary A Fierce Green Fire 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, Greenpeace to Chico Mendes, climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, this film is "nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself" (Los Angeles Times).
