David Brower
A Conversation with Scott Simon

An interview with America's foremost environmentalist.

A printer-friendly version of this page

56 minutes
Directed by John de Graaf
Produced by John de Graaf with KCTS/Seattle



Pioneering environmentalist David Brower led the fight to protect the earth for the past 60 years. He turned the Sierra Club into a powerful political force, founded Friends of the Earth, and was twice nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Filmed at 84, Brower showed no signs of stopping, having recently completed a new book, "Let the Mountains Talk, Let the Rivers Run".

This film begins with a short retrospective of Brower's life and then moves on to an interview between Scott Simon (host of National Public Radio's "Weekend Edition") and Brower. In this inspiring and sometimes surprising one-on-one interview, the environmentalist speaks candidly about issues ranging from nuclear power to the battle for national parks and his latest campaign for environmental restoration.

An astounding role model of persistent spirit and action on behalf of the earth is revealed.

Other films by John de Graaf are AFFLUENZA, ESCAPE FROM AFFLUENZA, BUYER BE FAIR, SILENT KILLER: The Unfinished Campaign against Hunger, THE MOTHERHOOD MANIFESTO, BEYOND ORGANIC, ON NATURE'S TERMS, HOT POTATOES, FOR EARTH'S SAKE: The Life and Times of David Brower, and WHAT'S THE ECONOMY FOR, ANYWAY?.

Reviews
"A great introduction to both Brower and the entire (environmental) cause...Simon's questions are sympathetic, but elicit surprisingly frank insights into the history, successes, and failures of both Brower and the movement."
Science Books and Films

"Brower...emerges as a tireless advocate for his views, but also as a gentle, warm, and humorous change agent... Recommended for general viewing as well as in support of ecological and environmental studies."
Scott Smith, Lorette Wilmot Library, Nazareth College MC Journal
