Movie Info

Filmmaker John Gianvito explores America's rich history of progressive social protest by taking viewers on a tour of the gravestones and monuments dedicated to notable American rebels and leftists. As the viewer joins Gianvito on his cross-country journey, the stories of the dissenters who disappeared from our cultural memory comes to vivid life before our very eyes. Filmed over the course of three years, Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind tells the remarkable tales of such forgotten radicals as Eugene V. Debs and Sojourner Truth.

  • A moving and intriguing reverie.

    Aug 1, 2008 | Rating: 3/5
  • The chronologically arranged tour ends with frenetic images of contemporary anti-war drumlines -- the struggle continues! -- which feels presumptuous; should we assume Elizabeth Cady Stanton's ideas on Afghanistan?

  • At once uplifting and thought-provoking, guaranteed to send viewers Googling figures and events, this poetic docu is inspired by, and a worthy accompaniment to, Howard Zinn's revolutionary A People's History of the United States.

  • John Gianvito proves once again that in the cinema simplicity begets superlative richness.

    Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Lengthy, beautifully composed shots of gravestones and historical monuments encourage us to mourn fallen heroes as well as to recognize our own vulnerability to larger forces.

    Apr 23, 2009 | Full Review…
  • A moving, if belated tribute to a host of visionary iconoclasts who were unappreciated if not outlawed or outright assassinated in their time.
