Storyline

Fifteen years in the making, this feature documentary - Executive Produced by Joaquin Phoenix - follows the journey of six young Americans who find themselves targeted as terrorists by the US government for their involvement in a controversial protest campaign. Seeing the future of social movement organizing, the activists used the then fledgling internet to dramatically magnify their impact as they systematically knocked out the pillars of financial support that kept the company in business.

Power to the (Animal) People
12 December 2019 | by paultourkinSee all my reviews

Extremely well edited and perfectly paced documentary that will make your blood boil. Shows the abuses of the Patriot Act fervor that led to the horrible Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act.

Goes well with Earth Crisis and vegan pizza.
