REBELS WITH A CAUSE is an award-winning documentary about the people who saved Point Reyes National Seashore and the GGNRA for all of us. Produced by local filmmakers Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto in conjunction with KRCB, the film spotlights the “Rebels” from many walks of life who fought to preserve open space, protect agriculture and wildlife, and establish public parks next to a densely populated urban center yearning for access to nature. Their efforts set new precedents for protecting open space and shaped the local environmental movement as we know it today.
Special guests will include Rebels Marty Griffin and Bill Kortum, along with the filmmakers. This stunningly beautiful film, narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Frances McDormand, has already been shown at several film festivals to high acclaim. The goal is to put the finishing touches on it and distribute it to PBS stations nationwide. A question-and-answer session with the filmmakers and Rebels will follow.
“Rebels With a Cause,” won the Mill Valley Film Festival’s Audience Favorite Award Best Documentary – Active Cinema.
