In 1971, a group of friends sail from Vancouver into a nuclear test zone, and their protest captures the world’s imagination. The Greenpeace story is vividly and dramatically told in Jerry Rothwell’s riveting documentary, a movie that reminds us of the central role Vancouver played in the foundation of the modern environmental movement, as well as the often difficult path that movement has followed over the years. Featuring candid interviews with Paul Watson, Patrick Moore and Rex Wyler, never-before-seen archival footage, and the music of Pink Floyd, Leonard Cohen, Jodi Mitchell, Brigitte Bardot, Country Joe Mcdonald & The Fish and Can.
