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

Wednesday, June 22 - Thursday, July 14, 2011

“This summer’s most urgent documentary…” – Outside Magazine

In 2005, Feds went after the Earth Liberation Front–a radical environmental group the FBI called America’s “number one domestic terrorism threat.” In a provocative and revelatory chronicle, Oscar-nominee Curry (Street Fight, Racing Dreams) explores the rise and fall of one ELF cell, asking hard questions about environmentalism, activism and radicalization.

“A wildly successful and engaging documentary.”
– Jon Reiss, NY Press
