*Post-film discussion with director ML Lincoln, Eric Temple director of Edward Abbey: A Voice in the Wilderness a 2007 documentary about Edward Abbey,and Kim Crumbo Director of Conservation for Grand Canyon Wildlands Council

How far are we willing to go in defense of wilderness? Wrenched explores this question through the life and work of Edward Abbey, whose anarchistic spirit and riotous novels influenced and helped guide the nascent environmental movement of the 1970s and ‘80s. Through interviews, archival footage, and re-enactments, the film captures the outrage of Abbey’s friends who were the original eco-warriors.
