If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front

On December 7th, 2005, federal agents conducted a nationwide sweep of radical environmentalists involved with the Earth Liberation Front-an organization the FBI has called America’s “number one domestic terrorism threat”.
If a Tree Falls is the remarkable story of the group’s rise and fall told through the transformation and radicalization of one of its members, Daniel Mc Gowan. Curry weaves a chronicle of McGowan facing life in prison and a dramatic investigation of the events that led to his involvement with the ELF. The result is a film that is equal parts coming-of-age tale and cops-and-robbers thriller. (85 MINS)
