When did activism become terrorism? And why are America's heroes being jailed, while its corporations continue to be rewarded? These questions are front and center in the timely, heartfelt and engaging documentary Eco Warriors. The film follows the story of Portland activist Tre Arrow, who was on the FBI's Most Wanted List for his radical environmental actions and forced to seek asylum in Canada rather than face life in jail. Many important environmental leaders are featured in the film, including author Derrick Jensen, activist Ruth Masters, biologist Alexandra Morton, activist and organizer Tzeporah Berman, activists Zoe Blunt and Ingmar Lee and Mona Polacca of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Their brave stories of resistance are educating, inspiring and igniting audiences everywhere during this crucial time to take action and be Idle No More.
