A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet is the first big-picture exploration of the environmental movement -- grassroots and global activism spanning 50 years from conservation to climate change. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to battling 20,000 tons of toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace saving the whales to Chico Mendes and the rubber tappers saving the Amazon; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, the film tells vivid stories about people fighting -- and succeeding -- against enormous odds!

.Official Selection, Sundance Film Festival, 2012.
."The documentary of record on the environmental movement." -- Cara Mertes, Director, Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program.
."The most thorough, expansive, and inclusive documentary film on the rise of modern environmentalism." -- Paul Sutter, Associate Professor of History, University of Colorado.
