The Giants explores the intertwined fates of trees and humans in this cinematic portrait of environmental folk hero and gay icon Bob Brown who took green politics to the centre of power. From a seedling to forest elder; the film is a masterclass that draws on Bob’s fifty years of inspiring activism, from the Franklin campaign for Tasmania’s last wild river, to today’s battle for the takayna/Tarkine rainforest. Told in Bob’s own words, his story is interwoven with the extraordinary life cycle of Australia’s giant trees, brought to the screen with stunning cinematography and immersive animated forest landscapes.
The Giants is suitable for secondary (Year 7–12) students undertaking:
- Humanities and Social Sciences, including:
- Civics and Citizenship
- Modern History
