Monumental: David Brower's Fight for Wild America

Film, Documentaries

Time Out says

Possessing a reformer's zeal and an adman's media savvy, tireless conservationist David Brower became the executive director of the Sierra Club in 1952. He grew the small club for outdoorsmen into a national political powerhouse that helped save natural treasures (including the Grand Canyon) and established preserves (such as Redwoods National Park) that would have otherwise been despoiled by developers. But while Brower had a keen understanding of how to use the media to advance his agenda, director Kelly Duane sadly lacks vision, producing a flat, artless hagiography that likely will only inspire yawns.
