About the Film
Judi Bari is dying to tell her story. With just a month to live, she gives her on-camera testimony for the civil rights lawsuit against the FBI and Oakland Police for blaming her and fellow organizer Darryl Cherney for bombing themselves in 1990.
As Judi narrates her own story, the movie draws from the voluminous archival footage, documents and articles to illustrate the events she depicts, from her early days as a union organizer to her legendary actions as an Earth First!activist. It culminates with her posthumous lawsuit trial in Oakland in 2002.
