 WE ARE THE GIANT, 2014 (88 minutes) 

WE ARE THE GIANT is the inspirational story of ordinary people’s struggle for freedom. Filmed largely in secret and sometimes at great risk, Emmy award-winning director, Greg Barker, delivers remarkable access as he documents six people from very different walks of life as they grapple with the agonizing dilemma at the heart of all struggles for justice and freedom. They must decide whether to take up arms and fight, or to advocate change through peace and non-violence. This film contains violent scenes.
