George and Beth Gage, as Gage & Gage Productions, have created award-winning documentaries since 1993. After successful careers producing television commercials and narrative features, they did an “about face” and began producing documentaries with a conscience.
Bidder 70: The Movie: Bidder 70 follows college student, Tim DeChristopher, who derailed President Bush’s widely protested federal oil and gas lease auction. Bidding 1.8 million dollars, he saved 22,000 acres surrounding Utah’s National Parks with no intention to pay or drill. The Obama administration agreed to save the land and invalidated the auction, but indicted Tim on two felonies facing ten years in prison. Bidder 70 illuminates how the choices we make determine our future and the world we live in.
