After bidding successfully on 14 parcels totaling 22,000 acres, at a price of 1.8 million dollars, he was arrested and, following a two-year trial, served 21 months in prison until his release last year. Filmmakers Beth and George Gage tell the story of Tim’s courage and self-sacrifice.

Burbank Green Alliance Executive Director Jessica Aldridge will lead a community discussion with contributions from Cori Redstone of Peaceful Uprising, the activist organization Tim founded while awaiting trial. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
