The story of the environmental movement - both at a grassroots and global level over the last fifty years - from halting dams to saving whales, told through the bold stories of people resisting and fighting for ecosystems against tremendous odds. Having shown where the environmental movement has been, the film ends with a vision of where it is going.

The film will be introduced by its director, Mark Kitchell, who also directed the Academy Award-nominated documentary Berkeley in the Sixties, a film which also won the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival. He studied film production at NYU, has taught at UC Santa Cruz, and has worked on a wide range of non-fiction projects.
