A terrorist is defined as someone who utilizes systematic terror as a means of coercion. Is it possible that someone might fit this definition without knowing it? Is worse if they don’t? If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, explores these questions and more through members of a radical eco-activist group. After setting two multi-million dollar arsons against Oregon timber companies, the FBI would go on to list members of a U.S. based Earth Liberation Front group as America’s “number one domestic terrorist threat”. This Oscar nominated film takes us into the lives of one of the group’s members as they await trial, while exploring what made him and his associates take such dangerous, illegal and terrifying actions.
