The Green Chain premieres this Sunday in Montreal

The program listing for The Green Chain is now up and you can now buy tickets to the three screenings this weekend at the Montreal World Film Festival. Here's the official film description:


The battle between loggers and environmentalists is defining, dividing and destroying communities in Canada and around the world. THE GREEN CHAIN, a funny, thoughtful "documentary" on the subject, examines a community and a way of life through a series of riveting inter-linking monologues inspired by the true tales and personalities that define today's forests and the lengths to which some people will go to protect their personal visions. Everyone "loves" trees -- the logger, the protester, the firefighter, the movie star, the company executive, the tree-sitter, even the local waitress. For entirely different reasons, of course. And not always the best of them...
The film (in English) is screening for three nights at the Cinema Quartier Latin. Click the links below to buy tickets for the specified screening from
