ALDO LEOPOLD is one of the most influential conservation thinkers of the twentieth century. His writings have become a catalyst for our evolving ecological awareness and a classic in american literature. Green Fire is the first full-length documentary film ever made about the legendary environmentalist. Green Fire provocatively examines Leopold’s thinking, tracing how he shaped and influenced the modern environmental movement. Leopold remains relevant today, inspiring projects all over the country that connect people and land.
