Director Robert Stone ("Oswald's Ghost," "Guerrilla: The Taking of Patty Hearst") drawing heavily on eyewitness testimony and a wealth of never before seen archival footage, examines the revolutionary achievements - and missed opportunities - of a decade of groundbreaking activism. The result is both a poetic meditation on man's complex relationship with nature and a probing analysis of past responses to environmental crisis.
