About the film
A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet spans 50 years of grassroots and global activism. This Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself,” says the Los Angeles Times.
