Stewart Udall: The Politic of Beauty

This film looks in depth at the period during the sixties and seventies when the environmental movement in America came of age, showcasing the victories and defeats with which Stewart Udall was intimately connected. The film examines the trajectory of Udall's life and how his ideas evolved, best illustrated in his conversion from a pro-dam Arizona representative to the Interior Secretary who dealt the death blow to proposed Grand Canyon dams. And we see the relevance of his concerns—he was the first public official to speak out about global warming, for example—to our current day crises. Perhaps more importantly, the film reveals a time when Americans were not yet so polarized, when big ideas could still capture bipartisan attention, and when America awakened to the unfolding destruction of paradise and determined to stop it.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with award-winning Filmmaker John de Graaf.
