Directed by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Mark Kitchell (Berkeley in the Sixties), A Fierce Green Fire offers the first big-picture exploration of environmental activism. Chronicling the movement’s most epic battles from the last five decades, Kitchell presents them as representative “chapters.” Based on New York Times environmental journalist Philip Shabecoff’s book, the film is not merely a history lesson, but an illustration about how individuals have made, and will continue to make, a difference to our planet’s survival. –S.G.
