Daniel McGowan at Full Frame Documentary Festival
by Tom Roston, Doc Soup (PBS), April 14, 2015

What’s probably most striking about meeting Daniel McGowan — a man who was labeled an “eco-terrorist” by the government, served six years in prison, and is the subject of the POV Oscar-nominated film If A Tree Falls (POV 2011) — is his sense of humor. This weekend he stood up in front of an audience after a screening of the film — the first screening he’s attended since it came out in the middle of his prison sentence — and imitated his draconian prosecutors as if they were like Dr. Evil from Austin Powers.
