Epifaneo Collective, 56 Walker Street, Tribeca, NYC, is screening “If A Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front” which was recently nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary film, on Friday, Feb. 17 @ 7 pm, with a special presentation and Q&A with co-director, Sam Cullman.
In the New York Times, "If a Tree Falls, Maybe it Can Win an Oscar," Jan. 24, 2012, director/producer Marshall Curry states that:
“It’s been amazing to me how much overlap there is between the unfolding story of the OWS movement and the story of the environmental movement in the 90s. This summer, when the film was first released, it was a historical film, but suddenly the issues it deals with are urgent and on the front pages of newspapers every day. We’ve had lots of activist groups and universities do screenings because people are asking, what kinds of activism are effective? What kinds are ethical? And what are the legal ramifications?
