O90 Friday Faves ⎪ If A Tree Falls
If A Tree Falls: A Story of The Earth Liberation Front is a haunting documentary that was nominated for an Academy Award last year. It pits the MLK versus Malcolm X approach toward change within the 90s movement of environmental rights. How far do you go to be heard? But unlike the civil rights movement, the environmental rights movement lost and some of the players are behind bars, labelled as "eco-terrorists". Most shocking and incredulous is the archive footage of police peeling back the eyelids of sitting protesters and applying pepper spray under their lids.
