“Green Peace” Documentary
What do you take away from the documentary Greenpeace: the Story?
o The activists involved in the Greenpeace movement have a cause in their mind
and are dedicated to it so much so that they would risk their lives for it
Eg: when they went out on the Zodiac boats to stand in front of a whale
that a harpooning ship was trying to catch. Even when the harpooners
were going to shoot at them, they did not move.
Deliberately put themselves in harms’ way to force their opponent to
demonstrate their stance on the subject
o Greenpeace has been around since 1971
Has been changing over time, grew to become a largely bigger movement
over the years
o Sense of involvement during the Vietnam war, when people wanted to get
involved in peace
o You can have a story but it doesn’t really mean anything until you have some
kind of visual proof (“the” picture, or a video)
