How do you save an endangered redwood forest? Making your home in the treetops

Among Giants follows a small group of environmental activists into the high canopy of an ancient redwood grove, where they have made their homes. Both the grove and the surrounding forests were marked for clear-cutting when the activists began their tree-sit. Blending vérité cinematography with intimate personal reflection, Among Giants offers an inspiring portrait of political commitment, and a rare and glimpse into one of Earth’s most beautiful environments.
