If a Tree Falls - 2012 Oscar Nominee for Best Feature-Length Documentary

A well-paced account of the Earth Liberation Front, the story is told with an obvious bias favoring some of the ELF members and their cause. It nevertheless maintains an even-handedness throughout, even in how it portrays some of the prosecutors positively and alternatively, displays an obvious distaste for certain of the ELF participants.
