Bidder 70
Bidder 70 follows Tim DeChristopher, a University of Utah student, who on December 19, 2008, in a dazzling act of civil disobedience, derailed the outgoing Bush administration's illegal Bureau of Land Management oil and gas auction. As bidder #70, Tim bid 1.8 million dollars and won 22,000 pristine acres surrounding Utah's National Parks. He had no intention to pay or drill. In February 2009, the new Obama administration agreed the land should be safeguarded and invalidated the entire auction. Nevertheless, Tim was indicted on two federal felonies with penalties of up to ten years in prison. A personal portrait, this film illuminates how the choices we make determine our future and the world we live in. Bidder 70 is Tim DeChristopher's story. It's the story of young people fed up with corporate control of their government; it's the story of the power of individual choices and their consequences. It's the story of a principled young man and the bravery of his commitment to a livable world. USA, 2013, 72 min., color, Blu-ray | Directors: Beth and George Gage | Featuring: Tim DeChristopher, Robert Redford, Bill McKibben, Terry Tempest Williams, Dr James Hansen, Dr Terry Root, Ron Yengich, Patrick Sheat
