Cowboy and Preacher

Running Time:  92 minutes
Country:  UK/USA
Genre:  Documentary
Cast:  Tri Robinson
Director:  Will Fraser

Tri Robinson, an evangelical pastor in Idaho who is also a life-long environmentalist, has battled throughout his life to try to get conservative Christians, many of whom do not take the environment seriously, to realize that being a conservative Christian and an environmentalist are not mutually exclusive.

Most environmental films seem to be framed for a liberal audience – i.e. they preach to the converted. Cowboy and Preacher aims at the unconverted, while also offering liberals and non-Christians a fascinating portrayal of conservative evangelical life, values, and mindset. 

In the film we see the efforts Tri makes to create a green conservative church and unite this with his life as a rancher, all the while developing a Christian system of ideas that unites environmentalism with moral development and action.
