"A Fierce Green Fire" Takes A Compelling Look At 50 Years Of Environmental Activism

Stocks in this article: GAIA

BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tackling the emotional cases of industry versus environment is a challenge that attracts many film documentarians, but to cover the story of the environmental movement as a whole is what Oscar-nominated director Mark Kitchell depicts in a compelling and ambitious documentary. A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet features a cast of top storytellers, including veteran film stars Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, Ashley Judd and authors Isabel Allende and Van Jones. You can now experience this important movie that chronicles the fight to save our planet on GaiamTV.com here: http://www.gaiamtv.com/video/fierce-green-fire

The film unfolds around five major stories from the past 50 years: * The Sierra Club's battle to halt dams in the Grand Canyon* Love Canal residents' struggle against 20,000 tons of toxic chemicals* Greenpeace's campaigns to save whales and baby harp seals* Brazilian rubbertappers' fight to save the Amazon rainforest* The 25-year effort to address climate change

"This movie is important because it shows clearly, with documentation, how the general public and blue collar workers not only awoke the nation for the first time to environmental health risks, but that grass roots groups are instrumental in taking ideas from a local level to a national level, to even creating a Superfund. If we can do all that, what can we do on other environmental issues, from fracking to nuclear power?" said Lois Gibbs, the force behind the Love Canal fight and executive director of the Center for Environmental Health and Justice.

Through these major storylines and several smaller ones, the film provides an exploration of the environmental movement from grassroots level to global scale. Vivid archival film and insightful interviews shed light on the events and what they mean, ultimately reaching a deeper view of environmentalism as civilizations change, and shifting our industrial society into sustainable balance with nature.
