Movie Info

A news anchor reports while graphic news coverage of a terrorist car bomb attack in 1990 in Oakland, CA is shown. Two Earth First! activists are immediately blamed by the FBI for bombing themselves. We learn that the victim/suspects Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney have later sued the FBI and Oakland Police and that Judi Bari is now dying of cancer before her case goes to trial. Weak though defiant, she gives her deposition, on camera, just a month before she dies. (c) Official Site

  • Relies too much on rehash and preaching to the choir to kindle a broad-based outrage, but it does make you wonder what really happened on May 24, 1990.

    November 16, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • While Thomson's unabashedly admiring tone too often turns the film into an outright tribute, she does present enough evidence to suggest that Bari, who died in 1997, deserves one.

    November 15, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Mary Liz Thomson's tough and intriguingly well-told account of the fight between environmentalists and corporate raiders ...
