We Are Many tells for the first time the remarkable story of the biggest protest in history, and how it changed the world.
Executive Produced by Pippa Harris (Jarhead, Revolutionary Road, Things We Lost In The Fire ), BAFTA winning & Oscar-nominated producer Signe Sorenson (The Act of Killing), and Omid Djalili (The Infidel, Gladiator, The Mummy) , We Are Many is the debut feature film of acclaimed documentary maker Amir Amirani.
Eight years in the making, filmed in seven countries, and including interviews with John Le Carre, Damon Albarn, Brian Eno, Danny Glover, Mark Rylance, Richard Branson, Hans Blix and Ken Loach amongst others, it charts the birth and rise of the people power movements that are now sweeping the world, all through the prism of one extraordinary day.
On February 15th, 2003, over 15 million people marched through the streets of 800 cities on every continent to voice their opposition to the proposed war in Iraq. This unprecedented global march was organised, against all odds, by a patchwork of peace campaigners in many countries, who reveal how they pulled of the historic demonstration, and whose legacy is only now unfolding.
In a series of captivating interviews, by turns eye-opening and funny, We Are Many captures the shockwaves of public opinion – dubbed ‘The Second Superpower’ by the New York Times – as well as astonishingly frank inside accounts from those who started the war.
