“The choice you are making today is what side are you on.”—Tim DeChristopher

BIDDER 70 centers on an extraordinary, ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience demanding government and industry accountability. In 2008, University of Utah economics student Tim DeChristopher committed an act which would redefine patriotism in our time, igniting a spirit of civil disobedience in the name of climate justice.

In 2008, as George W. Bush tried to gift the energy and mining industries thousands of acres of pristine Utah wilderness via a widely disputed federal auction, college student Tim DeChristopher monkey-wrenched the process. Bidding $1.7 million, he won 22,000 acres with no intention to drill.

Tim would never call himself an environmentalist. Justice is meaningful to Tim. Justice, meaning that since we on this planet are interconnected, what happens in one area of the world affects us all. Follow Tim, Bidder 70, from college student to incarcerated felon. Redefine justice for yourself. Choose your side.

Included on this official DVD is a special bonus feature: an extended question and answer session with Tim at the Tower Theater in Salt Lake City, following his release from prison.
