ABOUT THE FILM
In our angry, polarized time, Americans are looking for positive inspiration. The story of Stewart Udall brings audiences such inspiration and more. No American political figure is as relevant to the issues we face today as a nation–learning to work together, achieving racial and environmental justice, improving international relations, enhancing beauty and the arts, alleviating climate change and moving toward sustainability–as Stewart Udall.
“It beckons us all to public service, informs us on how we came to benefit from the conservation we so enjoy, and, perhaps above all, teaches us the power of persistence and a smile. Don’t miss this masterpiece.” Gus Speth, Director, United Nations Development Program, Former Dean, Yale School of Forestry and Environment
“STEWART UDALL is a visually stunning journey through US environmental history. The film is a captivating story that intertwines US history, politics, tribal policy, and environmental justice and activism.” Yolanda Cieters, Sustainability Manager, Center for Environmental Justice and Sustainability, Seattle University
“STEWART UDALL: The Politics of Beauty is beautiful, sad, joyous, contemplative, radical, thoughtful, challenging, and full of hope! One person can make a difference and Stewart Udall made a difference in so many ways!” Shelton Johnson, Ranger, Yosemite National Park
