THE RAINBOW WARRIORS OF WAIHEKE ISLAND (Netherlands, 2009, 87 min.)
A group of Greenpeace pioneers look back on their lives as environmental activists. Once they belonged to the crew of the famous ship Rainbow Warrior and took part in a series of successful actions until a bomb attack put an end to it. Now they are living together on Waiheke, a small New Zealand island. Have their ideals proven to be tenable, and what has their activist past achieved for the world and for themselves? Directed by Suzanne Raes. Produced by Lennart Pijnenborg.
Introduced by Gerard van der Wulp, Deputy Chief of Mission, Royal Netherlands Embassy.
