Program Description

Program Details

This film follows activist Ken Ward for a year and a half as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change. After pushing for a crisis level response from inside environmental organizations for 20 years, he eventually participates in a series of direct actions, paying a personal price for the fulfillment which comes from following one's calling.
