Climate Trial Puppet Theater

Peaceful Uprising | 2012 | 25 min.

2012 Official Selection

The trial of climate activist Tim DeChristopher was postponed nine times before finally taking place in March 2011. In November 2010, a group of Peaceful UpRising activists, including Tim, decided to stage their own trial. They wrote a brilliant play, and created larger-than-life puppets with the help of artist/activist David Solnit. Unlike anything seen at Wild & Scenic before, YOU, the audience, are the jury in this live theater.
