"The Edge of the Wild" Premiere, May30

 

This important documentary will premiere at the
San Francisco Green Film Festival
on Saturday, May 30th at 4 PM
purchase tickets!

For over 30 years, residents of Brisbane have fought to save rare butterflies on private land planned for luxury housing on San Bruno Mountain. This epic battle between private property rights and the survival of a species resulted in a major shift in national environmental policy – one that allows private landowners to kill endangered species. The Edge of the Wild is a documentary film, by local filmmaker Gail Mallimson, that tells the story of this struggle both past and present - through the eyes of a life-long resident of Brisbane, Michele Salmon, who is determined to reverse this policy and save the last population of these butterflies before they are gone forever.

You can purchase tickets, see the trailer and find much more information at
the The Edge of the Wild page at the San Francisco Green Film Festival website.
