Social Action Film Nights
COMING UP ON 26th NOVEMBER
Arts in Action together with the Transitions Film Festival presents a screening of Bidder 70 a multi award winning documentary by Beth & George Gage which centres on an extraordinary, ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience carried out in the name of climate justice.
Bidder 70 tells the story of Tim DeChristopher, a young man who disrupted a controversial BLM Oil and Gas leasing auction in 2008. He posed as a bidder (#70) and bid $1.7 million to win 22,000 acres of land he had no intention of paying for (or drilling on). Tim was federally indicted, convicted and sentenced to two years in prison for his courageous act of civil disobedience.
Bidder 70 is a personal story surrounded by a wider context of citizen action, our history of peaceful civil disobedience, and grass roots movements demanding government and industry accountability.
