A Fierce Green FIre
Fifty years of global activism has made the Environmental Movement one of the great causes of the twentieth century, and one of the keys to the twenty-first. This is the full story, featuring narration by Robert Redford, Meryl Steep, Ashley Judd, Van Jones, and Isabel Allende.
The Environmental Movement seeks nothing less than saving the planet from its most destructive force—humanity. Inspired by New York Times environmental journalist, Philip Shabecoff’s, book, director Mark Kitchell (Berkeley in the Sixties) documents crucial moments in the history of environmental activism. Dramatic personalities and lush archival images—many never seen before—bring pivotal moments to life in five chapters depicting five stories across five decades. Each illustrates the power of activism and commitment at a unique historical moment, often at tremendous personal cost. A film that will inspire and provoke, A Fierce Green Fire challenges us to rethink our past, our present, and our future on Earth.
