Edward Abbey’s riotous novel, The Monkey Wrench Gang, is the unifying thread of this character driven feature-length documentary nearing post-production. “Wrenched” offers a penetrating look at the environmental plight of the American Southwest, with a caustic sense of humor reminiscent of Abbey himself. This film is a lyrical tour de force of environmental activists, designed to give a voice to those both young and old.
How far does one go in defense of Wilderness? The split over direct action in the environmental movement, from its beginning to the current crackdown as seen through the lens of Edward Abbey’s groundbreaking novel, The Monkey Wrench Gang. The story of four ordinary people who were forever transformed by the degradation of the West, crossing a legal and ethical line — and inspiring generations of activists to do the same.
