ATA Gallery's flagship OTHER CINEMA film-exhibition series continues into its Fall season with a 2+ hour program of "Green" cinema, dubbed EARTH FIRST!
Drawing from some 700 hours of archival footage, photos and documents, Darryl Cherney presents his feature doc, co-directed by Mary Liz Thomson, that inquires into the car-bombing of Judi Bari (and Cherney) during their campaign around Redwood Summer 1990...the two were blamed by the FBI and Oakland Police for bombing themselves! Bari gives eloquent deathbed testimony for a trial victory that she, tragically, didn't live to see, enlightening us on saving large wilderness tracts from Big Lumber.
PLUS the NorCal premiere of Peter (Manufactured Landscapes) Mettler's meditative Petropolis on the Alberta tar sands, Sarah Lewison's mock-trial of Monsanto, and Josh (Gasland) Fox' The Sky Is Pink.
