'Rebels with a Cause' celebrates the people and passion that saved the coastal wonders that would become the Point Reyes National Seashore and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. With California’s rapid population rise in the 1950s, the California coast seemed destined to follow the prevalent pattern of suburban development. But, these rebels changed the fate of the land. Their efforts set new precedents for protecting open space and shaped the environmental movement as we know it today.
After the screening, celebrate SFGFF’s 3rd Opening Night with flair and pizazz in the Café and Superfrog Gallery in the New People building in Japantown. Mingle with festival filmmakers and special guests and enjoy tasty sustainable food & beverages, art, and live music.
