RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Through the Lens: Wrenched


In 1975, author Edward Abbey published "The Monkey Wrench Gang." The novel – along with Abbey's anarchist environmentalism philosophies – served as a blueprint for direct action and civil disobedience in the 1970s, ‘80s and even today.  A new documentary called Wrenched looks at how Abbey inspired eco-activist groups like EarthFirst! and more recently the Occupy Movement. We’re joined Monday by the filmmaker ML Lincoln, who directed Wrenched, and by two of Abbey’s close friends, Jack Loeffler and Ken Sanders, to talk about his continuing influence.

Join us Thursday night, March 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center(138 W 300 South) in Salt Lake City for a free screening of the film.

The event is free, but seats are available on a first come basis. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

This film is part of our Through the Lens Series, presented in partnership with the Utah Film Center.
