With unfettered access, filmmaker David Byars gives a detailed, on-the-ground account of the 2016 standoff between protesters occupying Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and federal authorities during a 41-day siege. No Man’s Land documents the occupation from inception to demise and tells the story of those on the inside of this movement, attempting to uncover what draws Americans — the ideologues, the disenfranchised, and the dangerously quixotic — to the edge of revolution.

UO Professor, Peter Walker, author of ‘Sagebrush Collaboration: How Harney County Defeated the Takeover of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge’, will lead the after-film discussion. ‘Sagebrush’ is an in-depth reporting of the takeover and how the Harney County citizens fought back.
