First 100 Days: Wrenched

Part eleven of our film-lover’s guide to taking environmental action in the first 100 days of the new White House administration. This week's suggestion: Wrenched.


Edward Abbey was the original eco-warrior.

His anarchistic and riotous spirit shines through in filmmaker ML Lincoln’s documentary Wrenched.

Told through interviews with his friends, archival footage and re-enactments, we see how in the 1970s he crafted a radical new blueprint for the environmental movement – "monkeywrenching".

Why is this relevant?

This is not a history lesson; Edward Abbey’s call to action is timeless and still influential.  

The characters in this film are as passionate about their stance today, as they were in their youth.

Lincoln's powerful documentary leaves you asking yourself, what am I willing to do to make a stand?
