Summary
Heroes of Our Time is a film that penetrates the inner sanctum of the organisation - Greenpeace, during a direct action against the international oil company, Caltex. The film takes the audience into the centre of the action, sharing with them the suspense, conflict and uncertainty of a dramatic confrontation between the passionate and committed activists that make up this organisation, and the company they are trying to expose. We are living in a time of threatening conflict. We feel our survival jeopardised by wars in the Middle East, Central Africa and South Africa. But there is another war, a global conflict more devastating and more uncertain in its outcome, a war that poses the ultimate question of survival of this planet. All over the world, individuals are making a stand against those who continue to pollute and disturb the delicate balance of our environment. Is this struggle creating a new breed of hero in the 1990's? 'Commandos for conservation'{u009D} and 'a well-drilled environmental army'{u009D}, are two of the catch phrases the media uses to describe the people and activities of Greenpeace. This is the first time in Greenpeace's 20 year history that a film crew has been allowed open access to the story that has traditionally been off-limits to the press. For an organisation that is so protective of its image, the people of Greenpeace have been surprisingly honest. Reveals a great deal about how activist groups, the media and big business interact to create the issues the public is exposed to in the media. Heroes of Our Time is a record of one 'direct action'{u009D} campaign undertaken by Greenpeace Australia
