ABOVE ALL ELSE

Directed by John Fiege
95 mins

In this dramatic, firsthand account of activists on the front line of the climate fight, one man risks it all to stop the tar sands of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from crossing his land. Shot in the forests, pastures, and living rooms of rural East Texas, ABOVE ALL ELSE follows David Daniel, a retired stunt man and hire wire artist, as he rallies neighbors and activists to join him in a final act of brinkmanship: a tree-top blockade of the controversial pipeline. What begins as a stand against corporate encroachments on one man’s land becomes a rallying cry for climate protesters across North America. ABOVE ALL ELSE premiered at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival, with an international premiere at Hot Docs in Toronto. The film won Best North American Documentary at the Global Visions Festival in Edmonton and a Special Jury Prize at the Dallas International Film Festival.

This screening will be accompanied by a short film by Environmental Defence.
