Bidder 70

Award-winning film, "Bidder 70" chronicles the story of Tim DeChristopher, a young man from Salt Lake City who acted on his convictions to protect the sacredness of Creation by derailing a widely protested federal oil and gas land sale. Tim bid millions to save thousands of pristine acres surrounding U.S. National Parks-with no intention of paying. Now he's paying for it with his future. The film shows his journey through the trial and conviction process that led to a prison sentence, including his passionate but reasoned reflections on the consequences of his form of civil disobedience.Award-winning film, "Bidder 70" chronicles the story of Tim DeChristopher, a young man from Salt Lake City who acted on his convictions to protect the sacredness of Creation by derailing a widely protested federal oil and gas land sale.
