45 min | 2020 | USA | Not Rated | English 

Directed by Chris Simon and Susette Weisheit

Ken Sleight watched the place he called home, Glen Canyon on the Colorado River in Utah, slowly drown under the waters of Lake Powell. That loss changed him from an old-school conservative into an environmental activist who will do anything to protect the canyons of the American Southwest. He’s faced down raging bulldozers from the back of his horse. Monkey wrenched? He’ll never tell – but he was the inspiration for Seldom Seen Smith in his buddy Ed Abbey’s classic book THE MONKEY WRENCH GANG. Now in his 90s, he’s still fighting for Glen Canyon Dam to be brought down and the Colorado River to run free. Climate change may make that a real possibility.
