New Blockbuster Film: "Tree Sit- The Art of Resistance"

Earth Films and Plight of the Redwoods Campaign have joined together, again, in a collaborative partnership to organize a educational tour featuring the new blockbuster film "Tree Sit- The Art of Resistance". This feature length film chronicles the dramatic story about the ongoing destruction of ancient forest ecosystems from California to Alaska and the growing movement to stop it.

Northern California Forest Defender Redwood Mary, via Plight of The Redwoods Campaign , has helped to educate about the work of Earth Films and about the story of those working in courageous struggle to protect the last of the world's redwood forests. "Luna-The Story of the Stafford Giant & Julia Butterfly's Treesit", " Fire In The Eyes", and "The Timber Gap" have been featured in over one hundred screenings to community based organizations, universities and schools during The Plight of The Redwoods Campaign's 1998, 1999, 2000 & current educational tours.

Earth Films's James Ficklin and Penelope Andrews, film makers/media activists; and Redwood Mary, founder of Plight of The Redwood Campaign, will be working with various networks and going on tour to present sneak previews of " Tree Sit" - The Art Of Resistance" - a compelling testament to where the efforts of many have come together to take a peaceful stand for protecting what they love.
