About the Film:
What does it take to halt drilling for oil and gas on pristine publicly owned land? Tim De Christopher, a courageous Salt Lake City UU young man was protesting the auction of leases on public lands, then entered the auction and won the bids for 22 tracts. With no intention of paying (and no intention of drilling!), Tim was sentenced to two years in a federal prison. Bidder 70 is his story and an engaging film. It speaks to Tim and his friend’s unwavering commitment to fighting climate change right now, not when we get around to it.
