BIDDER 70 centers on an extraordinary, ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience demanding government and industry accountability. In 2008, University of Utah economics student Tim DeChristopher committed an act which would redefine patriotism in our time, igniting a spirit of civil disobedience in the name of climate justice. He derailed a widely protested Bush Administration federal oil and gas land sale, bidding millions to save thousands of pristine acres surrounding U.S. national parks—with no intention of paying or drilling. Now he’s paying for it in federal prison.

The filmmakers will be present to do Q&A afterwards.
