How to change the world

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


John Henry Brookes Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes , Headington Campus


Includes Q&A with director, Jerry Rothwell.

This remarkable documentary examines how Greenpeace, the environmental activist network, was founded in Vancouver in the early Seventies.

But it is not really about the environment at all. It is, in fact, a devastating illustration of how power corrupts. No amount of whales saved from the harpoon can change that. Like Deep Water, Rothwell’s astonishing 2006 documentary about the doomed 1968 round-the-world yacht race, this is a tragic piece of film-making.

Filmmaker: Jerry Rothwell
