Directed by award-winning filmmaker Greg Barker, WE ARE THE GIANT – the inspirational and gripping account of the Arab Spring as told first-hand by people from across the Middle East and North Africa – will be available on DVD from 24 NOVEMBER 2014 and to celebrate, we have 3 DVDs to give away!
With remarkable and candid access, the film takes its audience inside the lives of six extraordinary people from very different walks of life, deciding they must stand up for what they believe is right, and take action. Each faces a brutal regime determined to crush them into submission, and each makes very different, painful choices that come to define themselves – and their struggles.
Activist Osama describes how his 21-year-old, Virginia-raised son, Muhannad, fought against Gaddafi’s forces in Benghazi. Syrian friends, Ghassan and Motaz remain committed to peaceful resistance even as their country descends into ever-more-hopeless violence. Sisters Maryam and Zainab become pivotal opposition figures while their father suffers in a Bahrain prison. Powerful, tragic and ultimately inspirational, these insightful stories, underscored by echoes from past resistance leaders, show the agonizing and universal dilemmas at the heart of all struggles for justice and freedom whilst illustrating what drives revolutionaries, revealing the astonishing sacrifices they must make to pursue their causes.
WE ARE THE GIANT is directed by Award-winning filmmaker Greg Barker, a former war correspondent and produced by acclaimed documentary producer John Battsek (SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN, RESTREPO, THE IMPOSTER, FIRE IN BABYLON). Barker’s most recent film, MANHUNT, an inside account of the conflict with Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden, premiered at Sundance 2013, won the Primetime Emmy for Best Documentary and received a special mention at the 2013 BFI London Film Festival.
