“The film, produced by Cherney, makes a clear and cogent case (later upheld by a court verdict) that police and FBI falsified evidence in order to discredit Bari’s cause.” Ronnie Scheib, Variety 

This riveting and yet musical and wry award-winning documentary is about the legendary Earth First! and labor organizer Judi Bari. Judi Bari was car-bombed in Oakland in 1990 while on college tour with Cherney (the film’s producer) to save the redwoods. Despite receiving many death threats, the pair was instantly arrested by the FBI and Oakland Police for bombing themselves. They sued the authorities for violations of the constitution. The film is composed entirely of archival footage, including appearances by Bonnie Raitt, Woody Harrelson, Jerry Brown and David Grisman. Stricken by cancer after surviving the bombing, Bari narrates the film herself via her deathbed deposition for the trial she won’t live to see. Follow Bari and Cherney through the incredible array of rare footage as they battle to save not only the redwoods, but themselves, as well.

Interesting Tidbit:

The opening song from the film is performed by Bellhingham’s own eco-troubadour, Dana Lyons.
