Filming the Fossil Fuel Resistance

Series: Portland EcoFilm Festival

The Portland EcoFilm Festival presents FILMING THE FOSSIL FUEL RESISTANCE: a fundraiser for THE RELUCTANT RADICAL, a documentary film on climate activist Ken Ward.

100% of all box office proceeds donated to help finish the film!

Filmmakers Lindsey Grayzel and Deia Schlosberg (Producer, HOW TO LET GO OF THE WORLD AND LOVE ALL THE THINGS CLIMATE CAN'T CHANGE) filmed "#Shut It Down" climate activists engaged in a direct action protest that manually turned off all pipelines carrying Canadian tar sands oil into the US. When the filmmakers were arrested and charged with the same felonies as the protestors, it sent reverberations through the world of professional media makers, raising concerns about law enforcement’s encroachment on freedom of the press and the impact on media coverage of climate change. 

Now the two filmmakers have joined forces to bring Grayzel’s film THE RELUCTANT RADICAL to the big screen!

Please join us for an evening with the filmmakers, including work-in-progress clips from the film, Schlosberg’s film BACKYARD, and a panel discussion about the essential protection the First Amendment provides documentary filmmakers. Co-presented by 350PDX.
