TREE-SIT: The Art of Resistance A film by James Ficklin & HAVC Come see the amazing new feature documentary about the grass-roots environmental movement. This film covers over 10 years of civil disobedience and direct actions to save the last remnant of ancient temperate rainforest in California! Here is the inside story that sets the context for this modern day myth. From the struggle to save Headwaters Forest, to the assassination attempt of Judi Bari, to the pepper spray torture of young activists, to the establishment of permanent "tree-villages", and the marathon tree-sits of Julia Butterfly Hill, Nate Madeson and others. A cinematic whirlwind of action mixed with poignant commentary, biting political analysis, beautiful nature footage, all mixed to a hypnotic cutting edge soundtrack of Drum & Bass electronica and tribal, pagan folk music. This film is historically relevant, exhilarating, informative, and intense! TREE-SIT is much more than just hippie tree-sitters, it includes big picture issues such as Native American struggles, political prisoners, our spiritual connection with nature, deep ecology, police brutality, government corruption, big labor joining forces with environmentalists to oppose corporate rule and the birth of the "anti-globalization movement" at the WTO protests in Seattle. Features Joan Baez, Bonnie Raitt, Woody Harrelson and Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. Q&A with filmmaker James Ficklin to follow screening. Evening will end with live music performed by members of Land of the Blind, (who are featured in the soundtrack) Howard Zinn describes TREE-SIT as: "Truly inspiring". *Winner of Earthvisions Film Festival award, "Best Forest Documentary".
