In 1971 a small group of Canadian activists initiated their first mission aboard an old fishing boat: to stop the atomic bomb tests that Nixon was undergoing in Alaska. This was the birth of the environmental movement and the creation of the global organization that today is known as Greenpeace.

Can a bunch of journalists and hippie scientists change the world with only the aid of their cameras? This group of pacifist ecologists use images as “mind bombs”, capable of transforming consciousness, trusting in the power of images and media as tools of social change.

Even so, activism is disorganized. The true revolutions have never been able to be organized. Will they be able to agree in the important mission to save the planet?
