Rebels with a Cause

Rated NR 74 minutes

REBELS WITH A CAUSE spotlights a group of citizens from many walks of life, who fought to establish public parks next to a densely populated urban center yearning for access to nature. Beginning in the 1950s, a national movement was born of principles that may seem obvious today. Unconvinced by developers who promoted residential construction, citizens began banding together to preserve open spaces near where they lived. The film retells the story of the schemers and dreamers who fought to keep developers from taking over the landscape of the northern California coast. REBELS WITH A CAUSE describes in fascinating detail how dedicated conservationists raised Californians' awareness of their power to promote change.
