110 minutes

The Giants explores the intertwined fates of trees and humans in this poetic portrait of environmentalist Bob Brown and the Forest. From a seedling to forest elder: the film is a masterclass that draws on Bob’s 50 years of inspiring activism, from the Franklin campaign for Tasmania’s last wild river, to today’s battle for the Tarkine rain forest. Told in Bob’s own words, his story is interwoven with the extraordinary life cycle of Australia’s giant trees, bought to the screen with stunning cinematography and immersive animated forest landscapes.

Antony and Billiet bring forth a powerful documentary that should inspire as much as it moves, with James Henry’s symphonic score enriching the experience even more, ultimately leaving the impression that in a world of chaos and uncertainty, be a Bob Brown, and support the world we live in. – The Curb
