Who Bombed Judi Bari? chronicles a great, unsolved mystery: who, on May 24, 1990, tried to assassinate one of the most prominent environmental organizers of her day, Judi Bari. Bari, an environmentalist and member of Earth First!, and her eco-cohort Darryl Cherney were car-bombed in Oakland in 1990 while in the middle of a speaking and concert tour promoting Redwood Summer, a campaign against corporate liquidation logging. Despite receiving dozens of death threats, Bari and Cherney were arrested by the FBI and Oakland Police for the incident. The pair went on to sue the authorities for civil rights violations, winning four million dollars, though not before Bari died of cancer seven years after surviving the crippling bombing.
Producer Darryl Cherney and director Mary Liz Thomson will be in attendance. A Q&A will follow the screening.
