A Flash of Green is a 1984 American drama film directed by Victor Nuñez.[1] It was first shown at the Toronto Festival of Festivals and New York Film Festival in 1984,[2] then aired on PBS as an episode of American Playhouse in 1986.[3]

Summary[edit]

A Flash of Green tells the story of small-town corruption and two people brave enough to fight back. When a local reporter starts sympathizing with an eco-group opposing a new development, a local county commissioner attempts to quiet him with a bribe. Going along with it at first, the reporter soon develops a conscience when the commissioner uses a right-wing paramilitary group to keep the eco-group in line.[4][5]
