Saturday, September 29, 2012
The Humanist Hall
390 - 27th Street - Oakland, CA
(Part of the Oakland Underground Film Festival http://www.oakuff.org/pages/coming-2012.html )
[We showed the Trailer for this film at our 9/11 Truth Film Festival and Dennis Cunningham spoke afterwards. Dennis helped win Judi's case, but later was part of a 9/11 case where he helped represent April Gallup.]
A news anchor reports while graphic news coverage of a terrorist car bomb attack in 1990 in Oakland, CA is shown. Two Earth First! activists are immediately blamed by the FBI for bombing themselves. We learn that the victim/suspects Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney have later sued the FBI and Oakland Police and that Judi Bari is now dying of cancer before her case goes to trial. Weak though defiant, she gives her deposition, on camera, just a month before she dies. This action-packed journey unfolds in the order Judi testified, questioned by civil rights attorney Dennis Cunningham. The archival footage brings the story to life, driven by music from the Earth First! movement. Judi Bari, an eloquent, brash orator with a union background, grows into a powerful environmental leader.
