  • If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front

    2011. USA. Directed by Marshall Curry. Political action and environmental beliefs are at loggerheads in this reconstruction of the recent unraveling of the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), a modern revolutionary movement fervently concerned about ecological imbalance and rampant capitalism. ELF members and sleeper cells employed economic sabotage to destroy deforestation facilities they felt were hurting the environment. The story follows Daniel McGowan, a mild-mannered, middle-class citizen brought to trial on charges of terrorism for his participation in ELF-related arson plots. 2012 Academy Award Nominee. Courtesy of Marshall Curry Productions. (POV) 85 min.
