New American Experience Episode Tonight: Earth Days

I have had the opportunity to preview the next new episode from the American Experience series from WGBH/PBS. This episode is The Seeds of Revolution: Earth Days, which premieres tonight, Monday April 19th, check your local listings for the time.

This film was entered into the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 and had many rave reviews.

This is a summary from the American Experience website

“It is now all the rage, but can you remember when everyone in America was not “Going Green”? AMERICAN EXPERIENCE’s Earth Days looks back to the dawn and development of the modern environmental movement through the extraordinary stories of the era’s pioneers — among them Former Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall, biologist/Population Bomb author Paul Ehrlich, Whole Earth Catalog founder Stewart Brand, Apollo Nine astronaut Rusty Schweickart, and renewable energy pioneer Hunter Lovins.

Directed by acclaimed documentarian Robert Stone (Oswald’s Ghost, Guerrilla: The Taking of Patty Hearst) Earth Days is both a poetic meditation on man’s complex relationship with nature and an engaging history of the revolutionary achievements — and missed opportunities — of groundbreaking eco-activism.”

Also, here is the video trailer to whet your appetite:

I will have a review of the episode posted on Tuesday. Hope to hear what you think of the episode.
