About the Movie

In 1971 a small group of activists set sail from Vancouver, Canada in an old fishing boat. Their mission was to stop Nixon’s atomic test bomb in Amchitka, Alaska. Chronicling this untold story at the birth of the modern environmental movement and with access to dramatic archive footage unseen for over 40 years, the film centres on eco-hero Robert Hunter and his part in the creation of the global organization we now know as Greenpeace.Alongside a group of like-minded and idealistic young friends in the ‘70s, Hunter would be instrumental in altering the way we look at the world and our place within it. These early pioneers captured their daring and sometimes jaw-dropping actions on film and from this director Jerry Rothwell has made a thrilling, sometimes terrifying film. A prizewinner at the Sundance Film Festival it is one of the must-see documentaries of 2015. Structured by the five rules of engagement from Hunter’s writings, scroll down to learn more.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This absorbing account is hardly definitive, but it teaches movement building without denying the high costs paid by true believers. – Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, Oct 29, 2015

Fresh: The goldmine of 16mm color footage, whose propagandic value participants were quite cognizant of at the time, is in mint condition, showing the excitement and fun of the movement in its earliest days. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jan 23, 2015

Fresh: A fascinating, skillfully assembled chronicle of the rise and inevitable fallout surrounding the granddaddy of the environmental activism movement. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, Oct 29, 2015

Fresh: Almost a "found footage" movie, it makes excellent use of 1,500 archived 16 mm reels supplemented with fresh interviews and some animation. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Aug 6, 2015
