The LSU Libraries Film Series is set to have its fourth and final film showing of the semester on Wednesday, April 17th, at 2:00 PM, in the Hill Memorial Library Lecture Hall. The fourth film is titled: If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front.  Here is a synopsis of the film on the PBS website:

If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front explores two of America’s most pressing issues — environmentalism and terrorism — by lifting the veil on a radical environmental group the FBI calls America’s “number one domestic terrorism threat.” Daniel McGowan, a former member of the Earth Liberation Front, faces life in prison for two multimillion-dollar arsons against Oregon timber companies. What turned this working-class kid from Queens into an eco-warrior? Marshall Curry (Oscar®-nominated Street Fight, POV 2005) provides a nuanced and provocative account that is part coming-of-age story, part cautionary tale and part cops-and-robbers thriller.  Winner of Best Documentary Editing Award, 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

If a Tree Falls will have a brief introduction from Dr. Aaron Lercher, an LSU librarian and environmental activist who has authored numerous articles on environmental ethics.  Admission is free of charge, and there will also be refreshments.

For questions or further information, contact Paul Hrycaj at 225-578-2629 or phryca1@lsu.edu.

Paul Hrycaj is a Research & Instruction Librarian at the LSU Libraries.

  • #TBT As the Tigers roar into the opening game of the 2014 football season, let’s look back at the season opener from one hundred years ago. LSU faced Southwestern Louisiana Industrial Institute (now University of Louisiana at Lafayette) on September 26, a game Coach E.T. McDonald (standing at left in the photograph) called “merely a practice game” against a much smaller team with less ability. LSU cruised to an easy 54-0 victory.
