Here’s a bonus film in the 2012: A Movie a Day series, as I try to pick up the pace to watch all the Oscar nominated films.

If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front is just as the title suggests, a story about the Earth Liberation Front. If you’re not familiar with the E.L.F., take a moment and read the Wikipedia page linked a few words ago. If a Tree Falls is the story of how a peaceful protester can become a “terrorist” in the United States.

Directed by Marshall Curry & Sam Cullman, If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
