A Selection from the 2014 United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival
Writer and activist Edward Abbeyв’s anarchistic spirit and riotous novels helped to inspire the nascent environmental movement of the 1970s and вЂ80s. Through interviews, archival footage and reenactments, Wrenched captures the outrage of Abbeyв’s friends, the original eco-warriors, and passes the monkey-wrenching torch to 21st century eco-activists. The fight continues to sustain the last bastion of the American wilderness вЂ“ the spirit of the West. Directed and produced by ML Lincoln.
