Redwood Summer

Documents both sides in the summer of struggle between environmentalists vs. loggers and timber companies.

A printer-friendly version of this page 30 minutes
Produced by Stuart Rickey
Produced by the Redwood Summer Partners

REDWOOD SUMMER documents a season of public demonstrations and civil disobedience actions against Northern California timber corporations by environmental action group, Earth First!

It covers the geography of summer-long protests: from small town Main Street to confrontations with bulldozers deep in an ancient redwood grove; and chronicles events from the tragic bombing of two organizers in May 1990 to a raucous Labor Day parade.

Earth Firsters and loggers join in a passionate conflict: a clash between people who struggle to tell the world it must change to survive, and an angry community that resists being told it must change.

"A program with wide appeal, this can be used in both high school and college collections, as well as in public libraries."
Video Rating Guide for Libraries

"This is a film that tries seriously to show complexity, rather than play on opposition, to show how deeply concerned the people are whose lives are affected. But it also takes a firm stand against the irrationality of cutting old growth timber, because there is no surer way to end loggers' jobs and livelihood than to cut down the last of the forests."
