Event Description
Earth Day screening of Bidder 70

Greentopia | FILM and the First Unitarian Church of Rochester will participation in the nationwide Earth Day screening of Bidder 70, a documentary exploring environmental activism, followed by live-streamed, Twitter-fed Q & A with the subject of the film, Tim DeChristopher, one day after his release from prison.

Bidder 70 was the recipient of Greentopia | FILM’s 2012 “Fork in the Road Award” honoring “a film that helps us understand how our choices determine the world we live in and and the possibilities for those who follow,” said Linda Moroney, Greentopia | FILM Director. “We’re proud to bring this film back to Rochester and to participate in this one night only, interactive celebration.”

As a student, Tim DeChristopher monkey-wrenched an oil and gas lease auction in 2008, which was later deemed invalid, saving 150,000 acres of pristine Utah wilderness from exploitation. After three years of legal wrangling, he was jailed for two years. Greentopia | FILM and the First Unitarian Church of Rochester will celebrate his release from federal prison on April 21, 2013 by hosting one of nearly 50 simultaneous nationwide screenings of Bidder 70 on Earth Day, April 22, 2013.

Busker at 8:30 p.m.
Screening at 9:00 p.m.
