THE RELUCTANT RADICAL
Sunday, July 22 and Monday, July 23 at 7pm
Newport Performing Arts Center
If a crime is committed in order to prevent a greater crime, is it forgivable? Is it, in fact, necessary? THE RELUCTANT RADICAL follows activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change.
Oregon filmmaker Lindsey Grayzel and film subject Ken Ward will be in attendance on both nights for post-film Q&A. Local environmental and faith groups will share information and opportunities in the lobby.
These film screenings are presented at the Newport PAC as part of the Bijou Theater Newport Film Series, with support from Central Coast Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Central Oregon Coast NOW Foundation, and anonymous donors.
