In 2008, a young University of Utah student derailed the outgoing Bush's administration's Bureau of Land Management auction, which would have opened up 22,000 untouched acres adjacent to the state's national parks to oil and gas exploration and drilling. Tim DeChristopher was sentenced to two years in federal prison for his civil disobedience. On April 22, just one day after his release from a halfway house in Salt Lake City (and, coincidentally, Earth Day), the Denver Film Society will present Bidder 70, a documentary chronicling DeChristopher's actions and the legal battle that ensued. The environmentalist will join the audience via Skype for a Q&A session after the screening. Mon 7 p.m.
