How to Change the World


In 1971, a small group of activists, led by my father Robert Hunter, set sail from Vancouver, Canada in an old fishing boat to stop President Nixon’s atomic bomb tests off the coast of Alaska. And it was this act of courage that was the beginning of a movement that shaped the world. Chronicling the untold story behind the modern environmental movement, the award-winning documentary “How to Change the World” looks at the very early days of the modern eco-movement, evoking the message of ‘ordinary people can do the extraordinary.’

Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and the recent winner of the Environmental Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2015, “How To Change The World” utilizes a mixture of never before seen footage from Greenpeace archives, cut with recent interviews with some of the key figures present during those early days. With actor Barry Pepper providing the voiceover by reading from the writings of my father, the documentary escapade into the humble beginnings of Greenpeace to its global expansion is compelling and inspiring.
