Join us for an award-winning documentary about, Tim DeChristopher, the student who monkey-wrenched the 2008 fraudulent Bureau of Land Management Oil and Gas Auction. Bidding $1.8 million to save 22,000 acres of pristine Utah wilderness surrounding Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, with no intention to pay or drill, Tim brought the auction to a halt. Although the auction was invalidated by the federal government, Tim was indicted on two federal felonies and served time in federal prison. This film recounts Tim’s journey from economics student to incarcerated felon.
