It premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival and will be playing at select theaters across the country beginning in September 2013. Educators, environmental groups and grassroots activists also will be showing the film at small and large events from coast to coast Over the course of the fall. Written and directed by Mark Kitchell, Academy Award- nominated director of Berkeley in the Sixties, A Fierce Green Fire (the film) is based on the 1993 book of the same name by environmental journalist Philip Shabecoff. The phrase "a fierce green fire" refers to a longer passage in one of the seminal environmental books of the 20th century, 1949's A Sand County Almanac. In the famous "Think Like a Mountain" section of that book, author AIdo Leopold relates his experience as part of a predator extirpation team that shoots a wolf in the New Mexico desert: "We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then and have known ever since that there was something new to me in those eyes, something known only to her and to the mountain.

Credit: A Fierce Greet Fire wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters' paradise But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view." Kitchelrs film shows how this passage and other writings were instrumental in raising awareness about the importance of wise stewardship of the natural environment and as such played a crucial role in the re-birth of the environmental movement in the 1960s. Featuring five "acts," each with its own central story and character, the film depicts a by Mike Marland |r  IT'S SO HOT WE- COULD - E$ WfI-IOO3- t00N ฐ- " central environmental conflict of each decade since the 1960s.
