“The extraordinary story of Bob Brown and the forest”


Dur:113 min


Dir:Laurence Billiet, Rachael Antony

Prod:Laurence Billiet, Helen Panckhurst, Paul Wiegard, Rachael Antony



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 GIANTS interweaves Bob’s story with the life cycle of the ancient trees he is fighting for. The hidden life of the forest is brought to life by cameras rigged high in the tree canopy, immersive point cloud animation generated from 3D tree scans, and thought-provoking insights by the likes of scientists David Suzuki, Merlin Sheldrake and David Lindenmayer.

Drawing on Bob’s lifetime of activism, from the Franklin to the Tarkine, THE GIANTS ignites an urgent conversation about the right of the Forest to exist and challenges the audience to write the next chapter.
