A Fierce Green Fire
USA, 2012, 114 Minute Running Time
Topics: Documentary, Environment, History
Program: True Stories
Language: English

Narrated by Meryl Streep, Robert Redford and Ashley Judd, this forceful and comprehensive documentary charts the advent of modern environmentalism and its increasingly urgent evolution. Academy Award-nominated director Mark Kitchell (Berkeley in the Sixties) carries us from the early conservation causes of John Muir to the formation of landmark organizations like the Sierra Club and Greenpeace. Kitchell's wide net captures the growing threats of pollution, climate change, overfishing, and mass deforestation and their effects on both ecology and society.

In five rousing parts, Kitchell not only chronicles the deep history of environmental concerns, but champions efforts to reverse the damage that centuries of human development have wreaked upon the Earth and its inhabitants. With its vast breadth and universal concerns, A Fierce Green Fire is a passionate and essential primer for anyone who cares about the quality and sustainability of life on this planet.

“Ardently passionate and naturually provocative.” John Anderson, Variety
