Director Q&As after show Mon

A documentary about the people who saved Point Reyes National Seashore and the GGNRA for all of us!

The project began 14 years ago when Nancy Dobbs, KRCB's President and CEO, read "Saving the Marin-Sonoma Coast" by L. Martin Griffin. The novel tells of the saving of the Point Reyes peninsula for a national park, the salvation of the Bolinas Lagoon and the establishment of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It also presents the threat at the time: Marincello, the Gulf Oil-backed development that would have put 30,000 residents on the Marin Headlands overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.

"I knew that most local people didn't know these stories," said Dobbs, and she decided to find a way to tell them.

In 2007, KRCB teamed up with Kelly and Yamamoto, producers of the award-winning documentary "Smitten," to bring the stories to the screen. They looked at the whole sweep of the Marin Coast, interviewing the Rebels and visualizing what might have been.

Narrated by Academy Award Winning actress, Frances McDormand, the film spotlights the citizens from many walks of life who fought to preserve open space, protect agriculture and wildlife, and establish public parks next to a densely populated urban center yearning for access to nature. Their efforts set new precedents for protecting open space and shaped the local environmental movement as we know it today.

This film shows how ordinary people stood up to large, well-financed forces to save these extraordinary landscapes for all time," said Ralph Benson, Sonoma Land Trust Executive Director. Each of us owes them a huge debt that we pay off by continuing to protect land for future generations."

Highlights of the film include segments with former Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall, then 90 years old, and with 102-year-old Edgar Wayburn, a former Sierra Club president, shortly before their deaths in 2010. They are just two of the collection of "Rebels," including Marty Griffin, who tell their stories in the hour-long film.
