We Are the Giant (2014) Trailer
Trailer for We Are the Giant.
Looking at three different uprisings in the Arab Spring—Libya, Syria and Bahrain—We Are the Giant reveals the experiences of young activists taking on governments and dictators. A father tells the story of how he was compelled to return to Libya to help his son fight against the Gadhafi regime. Two young Syrian men remain committed to non-violent resistance as their country descends into chaos. Maryam and Zainab, the daughters of well-known human rights activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja (currently serving a life sentence for challenging the oppressive monarchy in Bahrain) find their own way of taking a stand. Through a mix of on-the-ground footage and personal testimony, director Greg Barker (Sergio, Manhunt) gives us incredible insight as we hear first-hand the experiences of these brave young people and what it means to have a personal call to action.
