The Reluctant Radical follows Ken Ward for a year and a half through a series of direct actions, culminating with shutting down tars sands oil into Washington state on October 11, 2016. It also features other valve turners and many in our community.
Director Lindsey Grayzel, co-producer Deia Schlosberg and cinematographer Carl Davis were three of four independent filmmakers to be arrested and charged with crimes for filming the activists on October 11, 2016.
The Seattle premier of The Reluctant Radical will be combined with a welcome home party for Michael Foster. August 15th at Central Cinema. This event will fill up fast -- get tickets now.
