Risking injury and incarceration, an environmental activist disrupts the clear-cutting of an ancient redwood grove by sitting on a tiny platform a hundred feet up in the tree canopy. Already three years into the tree-sit when filming begins, AMONG GIANTS blends vérité cinematography with intimate personal reflection to remarkable effect.
This film was shot and edited in 2011, and a year later, the tree-sit ended as a victory for the tree-sitters (indybay.org/newsitems/2012/06/26/18716373.php) As of 2013, negotiations are still underway for the sale of the land, and the exact acreage is still being determined.
Huge thanks to “Farmer,” “Bingmouse,” “Amanita,” and the rest of the tree-sitters for allowing us to live with them and film their story. Learn more about their work, donate, and see what they’re up to now: efhumboldt.org

Thanks for watching!

Symphonize with the world to the ever-evolving city of Tokyo.
The 10 year celebration theme for Roppongi Hills is “LOVE TOKYO”.
We will be starting a movement here from Roppongi Hills to transform Tokyo into a more attractive and exciting “world-class city”.
We are opening a 10th anniversary website in which users can experience 3D projection mapping on a miniature model of the city of Tokyo at a 1 : 1000 scale.
Participants can enjoy various motifs of the city: “Futuristic City,” “Rock City,” and a traditional Japanese “Beauty of Nature” motif by pressing the keys on a keyboard, as if playing the piano.
Exploit the possibilities and make Tokyo more dynamic and exciting.
Join us in a symphony with the entire city of Tokyo, and enjoy this completely new visual experience.

"Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
