If A Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front
“One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”
- Gerald Seymour
I watched this documentary last night and it started an interesting conversation between my friends and I. For me it was really inspiring to see a group of people so passionate about something that they were willing to go to such extremes for it. I don’t know if their methods are right but after seeing the police action taken against them in the film it’s hard not to sympathize with the E.L.F.
That being said activism is a confusing and challenging subject for me and I don’t really know how to properly articulate my thoughts on it so I think I’ll leave it alone. But I think this documentary is worth watching. It’s up for an Oscar this year. It’s streaming on Netflix. Check it out. It’s worth an hour and a half of your time.
