Up From the UnderStory: Revitalizing Rural California

5/16/2011; 26 minutes

Explore how a diverse group of residents—loggers, environmentalists, Native Americans, urban transplants—in the Sierra Nevada mountains came together to chart a new path for their economically devastated community. The program traces the history of boom and bust resource extraction cycles in the Sierra, how the residents launched a rural revitalization movement, and the role UC Davis played in supporting their efforts. The documentary was created in collaboration with rural residents through the UC Davis Art of Regional Change program, a university-community engagement initiative that brings scholars, students, and artists together with social action groups to collaborate on community media projects.
