A Fierce Green Fire

Mark Kitchell didn’t want to make your standard here’s-a-really-important-issue, be-the-change-you-want-to-see-in-the-world, bleeding-heart environmental documentary. Kitchell, best known for his award-winning documentary Berkeley in the Sixties, doesn’t even consider himself an environmentalist. But the story of the environmental movement was too much for him to resist.

“It doesn’t get any bigger than this, in terms of a social movement,” he says. “Especially when you think about what’s at stake and the kind of transformation of society that needs to take place.”
