Rebels with A Cause

DAILY SCHEDULE | PROGRAMS A-Z

Narrated by Oscar-winning actress Frances McDormand, REBELS WITH A CAUSE spotlights a small group of people who banded together to protect and preserve open spaces near urban areas for parks and farms from rampant development. In doing so, they brought about America's system of national seashores and recreation areas. The film begins in the 1950s and tells the tale of this disparate band of activists who, despite reversals, diversions, and disappointments, persisted in their mission for 20 years. Their cause crosses party lines, unifies seemingly antagonistic foes, falters and is nearly extinguished many times along the way, but is ultimately victorious. REBELS WITH A CAUSE documents a fascinating example of a hard-fought campaign to preserve something important to all Americans - our public lands.
