Who Bombed Judi Bari? is largely narrated by Judi Bari herself, though she died of breast cancer in 1997, using footage from her deathbed legal testimony for her civil rights lawsuit against the FBI and Oakland Police. In 2002, a federal jury found 3 FBI agents and 3 Oakland officers guilty of violating Bari and Cherney’s Constitutional rights in order to silence them. With only weeks left to live, Bari tells her life story while the movie flashes back and forward to illustrate the events she describes.
The producer and director and many of Judi's friends will be present.
