As we kick off Projecting Change 2012, we’re so excited to announce our first film, Academy-award nominated If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, which tells the remarkable story of one man’s involvement with the Earth Liberation Front, a group the FBI calls the US’s primary domestic terrorist threat.
Part coming-of-age tale, part cops-and-robbers thriller, the film asks hard questions about environmentalism, activism, and the way we define terrorism. Katherine Monk, Vancouver Sun film critic had this to say about the film: “A truly fascinating documentary that unravels the complex morality of taking on a cause, this movie is the perfect starting point for what we can only hope is a continuing discussion of how to care for the planet.”
The film debuted at Sundance in 2011, and won a Documentary Editing Award. It is now nominated for Best Documentary at the 2012 Academy Awards coming up on Sunday, February 26. Join us in April at Projecting Change 2012 and click here to learn more about the film.
