Judi Bari was an Earth First and IWW organiser who was one of the first to
place as much importance on timber workers’ lives and families as she did
on the legacy and future of the Californian Redwood. But that strategic
relationship was too much of a threat. Her car was bombed in 1990, and
three hours later, she was arrested as a terrorist–charges that were later
dropped. Convinced it was a ploy by the FBI to discredit her and Earth
First, Judi decided to sue.

THE FOREST FOR THE TREES offers access into the painfully short yet
extraordinary life of Judi Bari, and a piece of U.S. history that everyday
grows increasingly resonant as once again the lines between dissent and
terrorism are being intentionally blurred.
