A stunningly beautiful film narrated by Frances McDormand, “Rebels with a Cause,” is the story of a regional California effort that grew into an astonishing system of 14 National Seashores — the result of garden clubs, ranchers, farmers, conservationists, politicians from both parties, widows, and volunteers working together through compromise and negotiation, with the American public coming up as the winner.
Marissa Walker, from the Marin Agricultural Land Trust shared: “I can’t recommend this film enough as a tool for inspiring local change. Although the film tells a local story about the San Francisco Bay Area, it reaches far beyond our little slice of the country. It’s also helpful in terms of describing the importance of land trusts in large-scale land preservation and environmental campaigns. A terrific tool for community engagement.”
