A Fierce Green Fire
An exploration of the environmental movement - grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change. Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, Ashley Judd.
Inspired by the book of the same name by Philip Shabecoff and informed by advisors like Edward O. Wilson, "A Fierce Green Fire" chronicles the largest movement of the 20th century and one of the keys to the 21st. It brings together all the major parts of environmentalism and connects them. It focuses on activism, people fighting to save their homes, their lives, the future – and succeeding against all odds.
The film unfolds in five acts, each with a central story and character:
- David Brower and the Sierra Club’s battle to halt dams in the Grand Canyon
- Lois Gibbs and Love Canal residents’ struggle against 20,000 tons of toxic chemicals
- Paul Watson and Greenpeace’s campaigns to save whales and baby harp seals
- Chico Mendes and Brazilian rubbertappers’ fight to save the Amazon rainforest
- Bill McKibben and the 25-year effort to address the impossible issue – climate change
The film offers a deeper view of environmentalism as civilizational change, bringing our industrial society into sustainable balance with nature.
