Grant Hadwin was an expert logger working in Canada’s Pacific Northwest, until his conscience spurred him to challenge the destruction of the world’s last great temperate rainforest in which he’d been complicit. His one-man crusade culminated in his now-infamous destruction of one of North America’s most sacred trees, a perverse and outrageous act of protest that was, in itself, a crime against nature. Hadwin’s Judgement brings us deep into the mythic Canadian landscape, and into the moral quagmire of an ecoterrorist who dares to harm the thing he longs to save.


Directed by Sasha Snow and produced by Dave Allen and Elizabeth Yake.
