Beyond the Classroom presents "If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front"

Description:
On December 7th, 2006, federal agents conducted a nation-wide sweep of radical environmentalists involved with the Earth Liberation Fronta an organization the FBI has called America's number one domestic terrorism threat. If a Tree Falls is a remarkable story of the Earth Liberation Front's rise and fall told through the transformation and radicalization of one of its members, Daniel McGowan. Academy Award-nominated director Marshall Curry (Street Fight, Racing Dreams) weaves a chronicle of McGowan facing life imprisonment with the Earth Liberation Front. The result is a film that is equal parts coming of age tale and cops and robbers thriller. Using never before-seen archival footage and intimate interviews, with cell members and with the prosecutor and detective who were chasing them, If a Tree Falls asks hard questions about environmentalism, activism, and the way we define terrorism. Troubling, complicated, and thought-provoking. Yale Daily News. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 18, 2012
