The Reluctant Radical
Jan 29, 2020
*Announcing a new film series and climate change documentary*
The Lowry Foundation is pleased to launch The Lowry Foundation Film Series. On Wednesday, January 29, 2020, we will present our inaugural film titled “THE RELUCTANT RADICAL”. It is a documentary film that follows activist and Oregon resident Ken Ward for a year and a half through a series of direct actions as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry in an effort to combat climate change. The film reveals both the personal costs and also the fulfillment that comes from following one’s moral calling- - even if that means breaking the law. Following the showing, independent filmmaker and its director, Lindsey Grayzel, will be on hand to participate in a discussion with the audience. Audiences may not always agree with Ken’s actions, but his perspective and urgency promote discussion and introspection about whether any of us are doing what is needed to avert the environmental catastrophe at our doorstep. This is a film that engages both our hearts and minds, fostering dialogue, reflection and engagement.
