TUESDAY AUGUST 9
7:30  The Forest for the Trees: Judi Bari vs. the FBI
Bernadine Mellis (U.S., 2005)

Artist in Person!

Tonight we present two very different portraits of activism that detail 
visionary citizens' efforts to preserve the natural world. The Forest for 
the Trees documents Earth First! organizer Judi Bari's case against the FBI 
and Oakland police. Following her passionate and effective efforts to 
create alliances between environmental activists and loggers and mill 
workers, in 1990, the car she was driving in Oakland was bombed, and within 
hours she was accused of transporting the explosives and labeled a 
terrorist. The filmmaker's father was one of Bari's lawyers, giving inside 
access to the intricacies of the legal battle, which continued to be waged 
in Oakland courtrooms after Bari's death from cancer in 1997. * (2005, 54 
mins, Video)

Preceded by:
Under Foot and Overstory
Jason Livingston (U.S., 2004)
Under Foot and Overstory is a playful and poetic portrait of an Iowa 
City-based group of environmentalists who work together to protect 200 
acres of urban parkland...but first they must write their mission 
statement. Revealing a love of nature, group dynamics, and wordplay, 
Underfoot and Overstory explores "an aesthetics of ecology" (JL). * (2004, 
35 mins, 16mm)
* (Total running time: 89 mins, Color, From the artists)
