If a Tree Falls

 Interesting looking film on campus on Tuesday and I believe it is free for students.

 If a Tree Falls - a story of the earth liberation front
Tuesday, November 29, 2011 @ 7:30 PM, in  Campbell Hall

“A remarkable and moving film… a documentary that forces viewers to challenge their own preconceptions and opinions.” Utne Reader

In December 2005 federal agents conducted a nationwide sweep of radical environmentalists involved with the Earth Liberation Front – an organization the FBI has called America’s “number one domestic terrorism threat.” This film is the remarkable story of the group’s rise and fall, told through the transformation and radicalization of one of its members. A thought-provoking film If a Tree Falls asks hard questions about environmentalism, activism and the way we define terrorism. (Marshall Curry and Sam Cullman, 2011, 85 min.)
