Movie Info

In 1971 a brave group of young activists set sail from Vancouver in an old fishing boat. Their mission: to stop Nixon's atomic bomb tests in Amchitka, a tiny island off the west coast of Alaska. It was from these humble but courageous beginnings that the global organisation that we now know as Greenpeace was born. Chronicling the fascinating untold story behind the modern environmental movement, this gripping new film tells the story of eco-hero Robert Hunter and how he, alongside a group of like-minded and idealistic young friends in the '70s, would be instrumental in altering the way we now look at the world and our place within it.

    Using a great amount of precious 16 mm reels, this is a remarkable account of the efforts undertaken by the Greenpeace organization in the '70s and '80s as an extraordinary movement that set out to stop ecological crimes and had to deal with a lot of tension inside their own group.

    A very nostalgic trip back to the creation of Greenpeace. We re-meet individuals who we have come to know quite well as legends of the movement - Bob Hunter and Paul Watson in particular. It provides great insight in how individuals can often undermine any social change.
