Running Time: 20 minutes
This video chronicles the amazing story of Julia Butterfly Hill's heroic
effort to protect a two thousand year old redwood tree. She lived on the tree for over two
years, and faced harassment from Pacific Lumber throughout her tree-sit.
But the world-wide attention that she gained for the tree helped to preserve it forever.
This video was made by the courageous videographers
of the Headwaters Action Video Collective, who followed Julia's
experience more closely than anyone else. This is more than just
a story of one woman's fierce campaign to save a forest. It is
the story of the community of activists who came together to
save something magical.
If you're interested in studying civil
disobedience, leadership, or environmental politics, this video
is for you.
