Rebels With a Cause, a California Humanities-supported California Documentary Project film by Nancy Kelly, premieres next month at the Mill Valley Film Festival.
We are proud to co-present the screenings of the film.
Rebels With a Cause tells of the David and Goliath origin for one of America’s most visited, and arguably its most beautiful, urban national parks – Point Reyes National Seashore and Golden Gate National Recreation Area. When California was the nation’s fastest-growing state, a handful of activists awakened their neighbors, local farmers, and officials to the threat of sprawl and over-development. Passionately, tirelessly, they raised support for conservation over time, successfully battling the most powerful opponents of their day in big industry and government. Their efforts set new precedents for protecting open space and shaped the environmental movement as we know it today.
