Through the Lens: Wrenched

Wrenched660_0.jpg

In 1975, author Edward Abbey published "The Monkey Wrench Gang." The novel – along with Abbey's anarchist environmentalism – helped create a blueprint for direct action and civil disobedience in the 70s, 80s and even today.  A new documentary called WRENCHED looks at the influence of Abbey on groups like EarthFirst! and more recently the Occupy Movement.

On Monday, March 3rd director ML Lincoln and others will join us on RadioWest. LINK

We'll screen WRENCHED on Thursday, March 6th at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. It begins at 7:00 p.m., but you should arrive early to get a seat. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Presented as part of our Through the Lens series in partnership with Utah Film Center
