Bidder 70

March 21: Bidder 70 (2012)

Discussant: Beth & George Gage (Directors)

 

BIDDER 70 follows Tim DeChristopher, a University of Utah student who on December 19, 2008 derailed an illegal Bureau of Land Management oil and gas auction. As bidder #70, Tim bid 1.8 million dollars and won 22,000 pristine acres surrounding Utah’s National Parks with no intention to pay or drill.  Although the Obama administration agreed the land should be safeguarded and invalidated the entire auction, they indicted Tim on two federal felonies with penalties of up to ten years in prison. The film is the story of one person, acting on his beliefs and willing to suffer the consequences.  BIDDER 70 embodies what Tim learned: sentiment aligned with action heals the soul, and it’s contagious. 73 minutes.
