In 1971, a group of friends sail into a nuclear test
zone and their protest captures the world's imagination, giving birth to
Greenpeace and defining the modern green movement. Media savvy from the
beginning, these pioneers captured their seat-of-their pants activist
adventures on 16mm film. From this vivid archive and sly narration by Robert
Hunter, an early guiding force of the organization, Jerry Rothwell has created
a thrilling, sometimes terrifying film; a vibrant, moving reflection on the struggle
to balance the political and the personal.
