Jerry Rothwell’s brilliant documentary chronicles the birth of Greenpeace and its charismatic founders. It’s a story of idealism, courageous activism and visionary leadership – but also of fractious group dynamics, egos and human frailty.
I’m grateful that it has introduced me to the writing of founder Bob Hunter – which I look forward to exploring further.
Rothwell has uncovered incredible archive footage. Go see it on the big screen, it’s in cinemas now.
