About the Movie
Award winning documentary Wrenched, by activist filmmaker ML Lincoln, captures the outrage and enduring inspiration of Edward Abbey, one of America’s original irascible defenders of wildlands. Abbey lit the flame of radical environmental activism and gave the movement its soul. Wrenched is a provocative blend of unique archival footage and compelling interviews of Abbey’s feisty monkey-wrenching friends - the pioneers of eco-activism and direct action. This film exposes the complex, pivotal and uncompromising moments in environmental history and brings them into the present with Tim DeChristopher, a leader of today’s generation on climate activism. The fight continues to sustain the last bastion of the American wilderness - the true spirit of the West. And Wrenched, following in Abbey’s footsteps, asks the question: "How far are we willing go in defense of wilderness?"
The Real Deal, a Cinematic ‘Wrench"
Just like Abbey, this film is the real deal. Back then there were very few “environmentalists" and fewer activists willing to risk their freedom to fight to protect our land from development. As we know now, "The Monkey Wrench Gang” thankfully helped to changed all that and this film captures the history, the energy, courage and essence of the beginning of the eco movement. These colorful heroes are brought to life in an intimate way. The film is tragic at times, surprisingly funny as often, don't-leave-your-couch entertaining and in the end a very accurate and inspirational memoir that will make you want to pick up a wrench! Thank you ML for this thoroughly wonderful film!
