In case you missed the news, O-Scope will be releasing two new documentaries that caught our eye at Sundance: IF A TREE FALLS: A STORY OF THE EARTH LIBERATION FRONT and REBIRTH.
IF A TREE FALLS: A STORY OF THE EARTH LIBERATION FRONT takes a look at the rise and fall of an E.L.F. cell – the organization the FBI has called America’s “number one domestic terrorism threat.” Directed by Marshall Curry (STREET FIGHT, RACING DREAMS), the film won a Documentary Editing Award at this past Sundance Film Festival and will be in theaters this June.
Jim Whitaker’s REBIRTH also debuted at Sundance and examines terrorism in America from a completely different perspective. Weaving the personal journeys of five people affected by the September 11th attacks over ten years with unprecedented time-lapse photography of Ground Zero and a score by Phillip Glass, REBIRTH offers hope and healing while documenting people’s ability to overcome adversity and renew. REBIRTH will play select theaters in August.
