350Brattleboro screens ‘The Reluctant Radical’ at Epsilon Spires

BRATTLEBORO — On Wednesday, Feb. 16, 350Brattleboro will host a screening of The Reluctant Radical, a 2018 documentary film profiling Ken Ward, a climate activist committed to civil disobedience to call out the fossil fuel industry for the massive damage it is causing to our planet.

Ward was arrested in 2016 for participating in a coordinated effort that shut down Tar Sands pipelines nationally. The film shares Ward's personal struggle as well as the fulfillment that he felt from acting powerfully on his principles.

A video chat with Ward will take place after the film, “so everyone will be able to find out what he is doing now, as well as his feelings about his past actions,” event organizers write in a news release.

The film will be shown at Epilson Spires at 190 Main St. at 7 p.m. A donation of $5 is requested, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
