Rebels with a Cause

Director: Nancy Kelly
USA, 2013, 74 mins
Website: rebelsdocumentary.org

Academy Award-winning actress Frances McDormand narrates this tale about activists who – despite reversals, diversions and disappointments – persist in their mission for more than twenty years and foster a national movement to preserve open spaces, and shape the environmental movement of today. Rebels with a Cause tells the story of the dreamers and schemers who fought to keep wealthy developers from taking over – and destroying – breathtaking natural landscapes. It is the story of a small regional effort that grew into a legacy of National Seashores, National Park and National Recreation Areas around the nation; a struggle that crosses party lines, unites seemingly antagonistic foes, falters and is nearly extinguished many times, but is ultimately victorious.
