PICKAXE Documentary Screening w/ Filmmaker

This is an excellent documentary.
Please forward to all lists.


Documentary Screening followed by a discussion with Tim Ream, Filmmaker.

PickAxe is a feature length film chronicling the year-long blockade to
protect Warner Creek in the Oregon Cascades. This area was off-limits to
logging until arsonists burned 9,000 acres and the Forest Service announced
salvage logging plans. The 95 minute documentary includes scenes from the
fire, the building of the blockade, Tim's 75 day hunger strike, the police
raid on the camp, the amazing final jailhouse scene and ultimately the
victory of a people's movement over corporate and political interests.

Tim Ream is cinematographer and a veteran of many direct action forest
campaigns to save endangered forests. Tim will be premiering his new film
"pickAxe" and speaking in a 40 city tour across the US throughout March and
April 2001. Tim's Chicago appearance will take place at the New World
Resource Center (2600 W. Fullerton, Chicago, IL. 773-227-4011) on April 19th
at
7pm.
