"Courage is more exhilarating than fear and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each new thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down."
If humans are naturally good, why can we do such terrible things to each other and feel so very little remorse? A remarkable film about the massacres in Indonesia in 1965-66 addresses this question head-on.
It is a film that everyone interested in humanity should watch.>
(executive producers were Werner Herzog, Errol Morris etc)
Risking injury and incarceration, an environmental activist disrupts the clear-cutting of an ancient redwood grove by sitting on a tiny platform a hundred feet up in the tree canopy. Already three years into the tree-sit when filming begins, AMONG GIANTS blends vérité cinematography with intimate personal reflection to create a vivid picture of life in the trees and the unwavering dedication of the activists.
