IF A TREE FALLS: A Story of the Earth Liberation
Thursday, July 14 at 7:30pm
Members $9 Public $13 Incl. Reception
In Person:
Filmmaker Sam Cullman
Marshall Curry's documentary tells a timely story of political action and environmental
beliefs at loggerheads. His reconstruction of the recent history and unraveling of
the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) is a fascinating exploration of a modern revolutionary
movement and its efficacy. Fusing fervent concerns about ecological imbalance and
capitalism run amok, ELF members and sleeper cells employed economic sabotage by
destroying facilities involved in deforestation to remove the profit potential from
companies wreaking environmental destruction. Focusing on Oregon-based activist
Daniel McGowan, Curry relates the tale of a mild-mannered, middle-class citizen driven to
extremes and brought to trial on charges of terrorism for his participation in ELF-related
arson plots. Detailing activists' past disillusionment with public protestand the police brutality and inertia that often followed
the film poses difficult questions about the possibility of effecting change from either within or without the system and examines the
changed stakes for revolutionaries today in a world fixated on branding all dissenters as terrorists.USA, 2011, 85 min.
