Storyline

REBELS WITH A CAUSE provides the David and Goliath origin for one of America's most visited, and arguably it's most beautiful, urban national parks - Point Reyes National Seashore and Golden Gate National Recreation Area. When California was the nation's fastest-growing state, a handful of politically savvy activists awakened their neighbors, local farmers, and officials to the threat of sprawl and over-development. Passionately, tirelessly, endlessly, they raised support for conservation, successfully battling the most powerful opponents of their day in big industry and government. Their efforts set new precedents for protecting open space and shaped the environmental movement as we know it today. Written by Anonymous

A cause worth fighting for...
24 June 2013 | by cmeneken-1See all my reviews

A well-done and beautifully filmed documentary-- inspirational and full of memorable vignettes of such notables as Stewart Udall and the late, great Clem Miller. As a Marin County resident who frequently enjoys the open spaces of West Marin, the seashores of Pt. Reyes, and the parklands of the GGNRA, I highly recommend this historically accurate and riveting account of the struggle of the brave souls who had the foresight to ensure that these lands would be preserved for all of us. As a (mild) critique, I will say that I would have liked the film to show how the work done decades ago inspired later efforts and how it connects with current environmental issues.
