Please join the City of Novato and community partners Environmental Forum of Marin, Marin Conservation League, and Sustainable Novato for a free screening of the documentary Rebels with a Cause: How a Battle Over Land Changed the American Landscape Forever. The screening will also include an intimate conversation with filmmakers Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto.
Rebels with a Cause documents the incredible story of how a vast amount of Marin County was saved from development, and how a regional California effort to save public land grew into an astonishing system of fourteen National Seashores. It is a beautiful film that shows how volunteers, ranchers, farmers, conservationists, politicians (from both parties) and others can work together through compromise and negotiation - with the American public coming up as the winner!
The film is a fascinating example of a hard-fought campaign to preserve something important to all of us - our public land. And it is a powerful tool to illustrate that the personal is political, and the local is global.
Rebels with a Cause is a feel-good cinematic experience that conveys an inspiring truth about how ordinary individuals have the power to change the rules.
Doors open at 6:00pm and the screening will start at 6:30pm.
Free with RSVP
