Sundance Watch: 'The East' - An Environmental Activist Film (Trailer)

This film "has been receiving a lot of buzz at Sundance" and brings to mind something Al Gore said a few years ago:

“If you’re a young person looking at the future of this planet and looking at what is being done right now, and not done, I believe we have reached the stage where it is time for civil disobedience.."

Via Women and Hollywood

"The East, co-written by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij (who directed and previously collaborated with Marling on Sound of My Voice) centers around an ex-FBI agent (Marling) who goes undercover to infiltrate a group who targets major corporations that commit acts against the environment. Ellen Page also stars. The film has been receiving a lot of buzz at Sundance. . . "
