Event Originally produced by Music Box Films in 2014.
Summary This critically acclaimed documentary transports viewers to the front lines of the Arab Spring through the courageous stories of six extraordinary people grappling with the dilemma at the heart of all struggles for justice and freedom: whether to take up arms and fight, or to advocate change through peace and non-violence. Powerful, tragic and ultimately inspirational, WE ARE THE GIANT follows the everyday decisions that transform not just individual lives but the fates of nations. As their stories echo across history, the characters in WE ARE THE GIANT speak directly to our own lives, reminding us that we are all products of revolutions, and offering hope in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Official Selection at the **Sundance Film Festival** and **SXSW**, winner of the Halekulani Golden Orchid Award at the **Hawaii International Film Festival**. *“A devastating marvel…Barker’s remarkable documentary (is) an intensely moving account of the Arab Spring. "We Are the Giant” is both vital and devastating, with raw material conveyed through elegant construction.” - Robert Cameron Fowler, **IndieWire*** *“'WE ARE THE GIANT is another prima facie document in the unfolding foreign drama of our time—one that could entirely refashion international relations. The subjects…are deeply inspiring figures.” - Brent Simon, **Paste Magazine***
