Please join us for a free screening of Wrenched, a film that captures the passing of the monkey wrench from the pioneers of eco-activism to a new generation which will carry activist and author, Edward Abbey's legacy into the 21st century. The film follows the fight that continues to sustain the last bastion of the American wilderness and the spirit of the West.

Paul Hirt, Professor of History, ASU, and Rod Mondt, Sky Island Alliance, will host a post-film discussion.
