Cowboy and Preacher: The Life and Times of Tri Robinson (2018)
Tri Robinson, an evangelical pastor in Idaho who is also a life-long environmentalist, has battled throughout his life to try to get conservative Christians, many of whom do not take the environment seriously, to realize that being a conservative Christian and an environmentalist are not mutually exclusive. Most environmental films seem to be framed for a liberal audience – ie they preach to the converted. This film aims at the unconverted, while also offering liberals and non-Christians a fascinating portrayal of conservative evangelical life, values and mindset. This film is absolutely timely – not only is the destruction of the environment probably the most important issue facing all people, but many American politicians and voters are in denial about it.
