Share Rebels with a Cause Film Screening

Event Details

Filmmakers Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto will screen their film Rebels with a Cause, and lead a discussion with select Rebels from the film. Beginning in the 1950s, a national movement was born of principles that may seem obvious today. Unconvinced by land developers who promoted residential construction as unmitigated progress, citizens began banding together to preserve open spaces near where they lived. Narrated by Frances McDormand, Rebels with a Cause is filmmakers Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto’s retelling of the story of the schemers and dreamers who fought to keep developers from taking over the breathtaking landscape of the northern California coast. Rebels with a Cause describes in fascinating detail how dedicated conservationists raised Californians’ awareness of their power to promote change.
