Can one person make a difference? Julia "Butterfly" Hill did. The
environmental Heroine gained the attention of the world with her vigil 180
feet atop an ancient redwood named Luna. She lived for two years on a 6'
by 8' platform communing with the forest and talking to media and empowering
activists through her cell phone to save old growth forest.
"Butterfly" is a good primer on forest issues and direct-action
environmentalism, but with balance. One reviewer commented that filmmaker
Doug Wolens' "does not really take one side or another." He gives footage
to the comments of the timber industry and local community, and the film takes
the viewer on a journey through the conflict, victories, and
disappointments of everyone. Most of all, it is about the spiritual
journey of a determined, articulate woman nicknamed "Butterfly" who saved
an ancient tree she called Luna and surrounding forest. An edited version
premiered on PBS. The Kenworthy will have the director's cut.
Looking for additional entertainment? After the film, walk over to John's
Alley for music by "Left Hand Smoke," a regional favorite on Fri., Jan. 31.
Check out their live music schedule for the next 30 days.
