Tonight’s documentary, Who Bombed Judi Bari?, takes an in depth look at the events surrounding the attack on Earth First! organizers Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney. Bari and Cherney–who is one of our guests tonight, along with director Mary Liz Thomson–were visible, vital forces in the fight to end over-logging of redwood forests.
Who Bombed Judi Bari? is riveting. The film unfolds through Bari’s deposition in the civil suit she and Cherney filed against the Oakland Police Department and the FBI in the wake of their 1990 arrest for transporting an explosive device, and utilizes news footage and on-the-scene videography of Earth First! rallies and protests to create an exciting and moving film.
