Well into producer-director M.L. Lincoln’s Wrenched, its central figure, the late writer and environmental activist Edward Abbey, defines the difference between sabotage and terrorism. “Monkey wrenching,” the term that gives the movie its name, is closer to the former. The meme is pulled from Abbey’s book The Monkey Wrench Gang, about a group of eco-meddlers who  seek to stop the road-building, mining, and damming that persist in the American Southwest. The other central figure is Tim DeChristopher, who disrupted a 2008 auction of oil and gas leases. Part Abbey bio, part history of the radical environmental movement, and part ecological call to arms, Wrenched shows as part of the Santa Fe Film Festival. Writer and activist Jack Loeffler attends the showing, at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 4, only. Not rated. 93 minutes. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe.
