Synopsis

Award winning documentary Wrenched, by activist filmmaker ML Lincoln, captures the outrage and enduring inspiration of Edward Abbey, one of America’s original irascible defenders of wildlands. Abbey lit the flame of radical environmental activism and gave the movement its soul. Wrenched is a provocative blend of unique archival footage and compelling interviews of Abbey’s feisty monkey-wrenching friends - the pioneers of eco-activism and direct action. This film exposes the complex, pivotal and uncompromising moments in environmental history and brings them into the present with Tim DeChristopher, a leader of today’s generation on climate activism. The fight continues to sustain the last bastion of the American wilderness - the true spirit of the West. And Wrenched, following in Abbey’s footsteps, asks the question: "How far are we willing go in defense of wilderness?"
