Legendary Earth First! organizer and car-bomb victim Judi Bari may have passed away in 1997, but just after the 15th anniversary of her death a 93-minute documentary Who Bombed Judi Bari?, produced by her eco-cohort Darryl Cherney, will bring her back to life and have its Humboldt County premieres at the Arcata Playhouse on Saturday and Sunday March 10 and 11; and at the Garberville Theatre, Tuesday through Thursday, March 13 through 15. All shows commence at 7:30 p.m. and admission is a sliding scale donation to the movie’s upcoming festival expenses.
The movie’s world premiere takes place at San Francisco Green Film Festival on March 2 and the East Coast premiere is on March 4 at the DC Independent Film Festival. The movie will also show at the Santa Cruz Film Festival and the Santa Rosa International Film Festival. Schedule and trailer are on the movie’s website http://whobombedjudibari.com/.
Directed by Mary Liz Thomson, the movie was created entirely from archival footage including Bari’s inspirational speeches, colorful and daring redwood protests, a musical appearance by Bonnie Raitt, and a tribute to Bari by Jerry Brown.
