Where: 1102 South Campus Commons, Building 1
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

"The choice you are making today is what side are you on." -Tim DeChristopher
Bidder 70 centers on an extraordinary, ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience demanding government and industry accountability. In 2008, University of Utah economics student Tim DeChristopher committed an act which would redefine patriotism in our time, igniting a spirit of civil disobedience in the name of climate justice. Follow Tim, Bidder 70, from college student to incarcerated felon. Redefine justice for yourself. Choose your side. On December 19, 2008, Tim DeChristopher disrupted a highly disputed Utah BLM Oil and Gas lease auction, effectively safeguarding thousands of acres of pristine Utah land that were slated for oil and gas leases. Not content to merely protest outside, Tim entered the auction hall and registered as bidder #70.

"An excellent new documentary, "Bidder 70," tells the story of another young hero's great risk on behalf of the environment." National Catholic Reporter
