The movie “A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle For a Living Planet”, produced and directed by our guest, Mark Kitchell tells the story of environmental activism – people trying to save the planet, their homes, the future.  In a chronicle of five decades of grassroots and global environmental movements, Kitchell explores how we arrived at the present world-wide crisis.  While exploring broader ideas and deeper meanings, A Fierce Green Fire brings together eras in the past 50 years from conservation to climate change.

The Mendocino Film Festival presents the world premier of A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle For a Living Planet, November 9, 10, and 11, in Ft. Bragg, Mendocino and Pt. Arena.  You may learn more at and
