BIDDER 70 (Doc Night at The New Parkway)
2012 / NR / 70 minutes

In 2008, as George W. Bush tried to gift the energy and mining industries thousands of acres of pristine Utah wilderness via a widely disputed federal auction, college student Tim DeChristopher decided to monkey-wrench the process. Bidding $1.7 million, he won 22,000 acres with no intention to drill. For this astonishing (and successful) act of civil disobedience he was sent to federal prison. Beth and George Gage's new documentary BIDDER 70 tells the story of this peaceful warrior whose patriotism and willingness to sacrifice have ignited the climate justice movement.

"...without the slightest tinge of manipulation, Bidder 70 convinces us that these people really do care about the fate of humankind and that we're entrapped in a legal system that is, environmentally speaking, still set on driving us off a cliff. "
-Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine

"Topped my list for the most inspiring film"
-Stephanie Penn Spears, EcoWatch

"Powerful, intelligent and very entertaining, BIDDER 70 will show you how one person can change the world."
- Frank Marshall, Kennedy-Marshall Company

"A film everyone needs to see, even if you think you're well-informed about political issues, environmentalism, and global climate change."
-Ashland Independent Film Festival
