More about the film: "The first full-length documentary film ever made about legendary environmentalist Aldo Leopold, Green Fire highlights Leopold’ sextraordinary career, tracing how he shaped and influenced the modern environmental movement. Leopold remains relevant today, inspiring projects that connect people and land. Green Fire describes the formation of Leopold’s idea, exploring how it changed one man and later permeated through all arenas of conservation.
