Hidden in Plain Sight: Mt. Tamalpais, guardian peak of the SF Bay Area, is considered sacred by many, Native and non-native alike. In 1950, the Army bulldozed the highest peak of Tam to build an Air Force Station tasked with directing jet interceptors and short range Nike nuclear missiles against the potential threat of Russian nuclear bombers.

By 1980 the base was obsolete and summarily closed and the military literally walked away from dozens of structures, leaving behind a huge toxic mess on the mountain -- asbestos, fencing, foundations, and infrastructure. Through the use of historical footage, interviews and exquisite cinematography, this film explores the history of the West Peak of Mt. Tamalpais and how local citizens have been fighting to restore their mountain to a natural state.
