DOCUMENTARY: The story of how a bunch of hippies, yippies and environmentalists started Greenpeace. This documentary structured around the writings of key player and former journo Bob Hunter [voiced by Barry Pepper], unpacks how the movement evolved from a quixotic quest on a decrepit boat to stop a nuclear test off the coast of Alaska and then branched out into whale saving and later broader environmental issues.
There’s no missing the polemical points being made or doubting the film is meant to inspire further action, but even hardened whale-eating oil oligarchs are likely to be charmed by the idealism and smarts of these audacious activists.
Features an eclectic soundtrack including Country Joe and the Fish, Joni MItchell and other groovy muso’s to add atmosphere.
