Bidder 70

Bidder 70 is the story of Tim DeChristopher, a University of Utah student, who on December 19, 2008, halted the outgoing Bush administration’s controversial Bureau of Land Management oil and gas lease sale, bidding 1.8 million dollars to save 22,000 pristine acres around Utah’s National Parks. Tim had no intention to pay or drill; now he’s paying for it with his future.
