Question and Answer Session with Attorney Dennis Cunningham (honoree of the 2007 NLG testimonial dinner) and reception to Follow.

This film is an intimate look at an unlikely team of young activists and old lefties who come together to battle the U.S. government following environmental activist Judi Bari's arrest on terrorism charges in 1990.

Filmmaker Bernadine Mellis, the daughter of Bari's attorney, Dennis Cunningham, is there to document her morally driven, very tired dad. The film offers access into the life of the extraordinary Judi Bari, and a piece of U.S. history that everyday grows Increasingly resonant.
