A stunningly beautiful film narrated by Frances McDormand, REBELS WITH A CAUSE spotlights a battle over land that changed the American landscape forever.

It is a the story of a regional California effort that grew into an astonishing system of fourteen National Seashores - the result of garden clubs, ranchers, farmers, conservationists, politicians from both parties, widows and volunteers working together through compromise and negotiation, with the American public coming up as the winner.

It's a fascinating example of a hard fought campaign to preserve something important to all of us - our public land. And it is a powerful tool to illustrate that the personal is political, and the local is global. REBELS is a feel-good cinematic experience that conveys an inspiring truth about how ordinary individuals have the power to change the rules.

*Come hear how their efforts changed our local landscape here in Marin County.
REBELS WITH A CAUSE had its World Premiere at the 2012 Mill Valley Film Festival where it won the Audience Favorite Award for Best Documentary - Active Cinema.

Filmmaker will be in attendance for Q&A post film.
