Flashpoints will be showcasing a new film,"The Forest for the Trees"

Judi Bari, eco-folk hero and labour activist, fought the law and won. In the summer of 1991, Bari organized a massive protest when a bomb blew up in her car, leaving her with injuries so severe that doctors thought she would never walk again. The FBI and the Oakland police accused her of bombing her own car and labeled her a terrorist. She sued them to defend her name and the movement. This is her story.
