About The Film

Among Giants

Directed by Ben Mullinkosson, Sam Price-Waldman, and Chris Cresci

In the midst of California’s coastal redwood region, Green Diamond Resource Company continues to clearcut redwood forests, devastating habitats and leaving scars across the land. Farmer, a direct action environmental activist in his late 20s, decides to tree-sit in the McKay Tract -- a 60-acre grove of ancient redwoods that is home to spotted owls, deer, flying squirrels, and countless other life forms. Among Giants begins three years into the McKay tree-sit. Atop his tiny platform a hundred feet up in the ancient redwood canopy, Farmer must battle the elements and avoid isolation as he fights for a sustainable future. What does it mean to follow one’s beliefs and make a difference in the world?
