About the film:


THE FOREST FOR THE TREES: Judi Bari v. the FBI


In 1990, environmentalist and union organizer Judi Bari's car was bombed. Within three hours of the bombing, Bari was accused of transporting the exlposives that had nearly killed her. Still in the hospital, she was arrested and labeled a terrorist in the national media. THE FOREST FOR THE TREES follows Judi Bari's story,
culminating in her civil suit against the FBI. At the heart of the film is Bari, a folk hero with an electrifying on-screen presence, and the legal battle against law enforcement that few believed she could win.

Made by Bernadine Mellis, the daughter of Judi Bari’s lead attorney Dennis Cunningham, the film follows the last major case of his career with a sense of both the beauty and the costs of a life of activism.


The current cut of the film has been screening in festivals and venues nationally, including at The Pacific Film Archive (this month), The Brooklyn Museum, The New York Underground Film Festival, the Ashland Independent Film Festival (where it won Best Short
Documentary), and the Santa Cruz Film Festival (where it won the Audience Award for Best Short Documentary). The art auction is intended to raise funds for a professional sound mix and distribution
costs.
