Writer and activist Edward Abbey’s anarchistic spirit and riotous novels helped to inspire the nascent environmental movement of the 1970s and ‘80s. Through interviews, archival footage and reenactments, Wrenched captures the outrage of Abbey’s friends, the original eco-warriors, and passes the monkey-wrenching torch to 21st century eco-activists. The fight continues to sustain the last bastion of the American wilderness – the spirit of the West. Directed and produced by ML Lincoln.
