March Fourth Friday/Films of Vision and Hope – A Fierce Green Fire

fierce green fire wide

As many people and organizations explore how to “step things up” – to get more active in working for climate and environmental justice – March Fourth Friday will take a look at where we’ve come from.

A FIERCE GREEN FIRE: The Battle for a Living Planet explores fifty years of grassroots and global environmental activism – from conservation to climate change. The film premiered at Sundance in 2012 and has won acclaim at festivals around the world. Narrated by Robert Redford, Ashley Judd, Van Jones, Isabel Allende and Meryl Streep, the film explores major fights and accomplishments of the environmental movement, and offers a deeper view of environmentalism as civilizational change, working to bring our industrial society into sustainable balance with nature.

Inspired by the book of the same name, A Fierce Green Fire 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.
