Social Justice Film: “BIDDER 70”

12 Jul 2013

In 2008, University of Utah student,Tim DeChristopher, in a bold act of civil-disobedience, bid 1.8 million dollars for 22,000 pristine acres surrounding Utah’s National Parks, leading to the auction being invalidated and land safeguarded for future generations. Nevertheless, Tim was indicted on federal felonies and served time in prison. “Bidder 70” distinguished itself as a beautifully told story of a hero’s journey filled with passion and sacrifice that tugs at the head and heart to the final scene.” reported by Jury, Traverse City Film Festival.
