'An Unreasonable Man'

Since the mid-sixties, when Ralph Nader published Unsafe at any Speed, taking on the automobile industry, he has been a force for consumer activism. He inspired scores of young idealists to come work for him, including Henriette Mantel. Mantel has co-directed An Unreasonable Man, a documentary examining Nader's long career.
