Bidder 70 centres on an extraordinarily ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience demanding government and industry accountability. In the name of climate justice, University of Utah economics student Tim DeChristopher purchased oil and gas lease rights to thousands of acres of federal land in southern Utah, even though he had no intention of paying for it. Follow Tim (Bidder 70) from college student to incarcerated felon. DeChristopher says, “At this point of unimaginable threats on the horizon, this is what hope looks like…With countless lives on the line, this is what love looks like, and it will only grow…” Powerful, intelligent and very entertaining, Bidder 70 will show you how one person can change the world. This is a truly inspiring story.
