On April 22, the official Earth Day screening will be followed by live streaming video of Tim DeChristopher’s first public address since his release from federal prison after a 21 month sentence. Movie-lovers and climate activists around the country have arranged local screenings and can participate live via Skype and Twitter in a Q&A with DeChristopher and filmmakers Beth and George Gage during the Salt Lake City premiere.
BIDDER 70 is a compelling feature-length documentary that chronicles how one young man’s act of civil disobedience blazed a new trail in the climate justice movement. At a time when the debate over climate change is finally gaining post-election “steam,” when hot-button topics such as fracking and the Keystone XL Pipeline have captured the country’s attention, BIDDER 70 is poised to showcase the face and voice of a movement that has been steadily gathering force, comprised of people who have grave concerns over our future as well as our present.
