Rebels with a Cause: Watch the trailer
The breathtaking beaches and bluffs north of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge are a treasured escape—a natural playground in easy reach of the city. But of the millions of visitors to the Northern California coast, few remember how close the community came to losing these lands forever. In Rebels With a Cause, independent filmmakers Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto tell the forgotten story of the battle to save this iconic coastline. Featuring interviews with conservation visionaries—including founders of The Trust for Public Land—the film celebrates a California legacy that inspired a movement to protect natural land nationwide.
We loved this inspiring documentary about the pioneers of the conservation movement—and not just because it includes founders of The Trust for Public Land! The beautifully shot film features standout storytelling and breathtaking footage of the California coast. It’s screening in select cities across the country—and coming soon to PBS.
