Environment in Focus: If a Tree Falls – Friday, April 18

The Academy Award nominated environmental documentary If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front
 – which has won film festivals around the country – is coming to AUSB as a part of the Environment in Focus series. The screening will be held Friday, April 18, from 7-9 pm, and is free and open to the public.

This film explores the tumultuous period from 1995 until early 2001 when environmentalists were clashing with timber companies and law enforcement, and tells the 
remarkable story of the rise and fall of the radical group called the Earth Liberation Front (ELF). It asks the hard questions in an honest exploration of environmentalism, activism, and the way we define terrorism.

After the film, AUSB’s Dr. Dawn Murray, professor in the Environmental Studies program, will facilitate conversation to extend the dialogue on these important topics. Please join us!

Watch the trailer and learn more here. 

Each quarter, the Environmental Studies faculty at AUSB and the Fund for Santa Barbara co-sponsor a collaborative series on contemporary environmental issues affecting our world, free to our community. For additional information, contact Dr. Dawn Murray, BA Program Faculty at [email protected].
