BIGGER THAN US is much more than a movie. It is a tool to learn, to connect and hopefully to lift each other.
The 1100 contributors to our crowdfunding campaign got this: the theatrical release of the film is the starting point – and not the finish line – of a great collective adventure to raise awareness, to start a much needed conversation (on what to do next) and to activate people for alignement and change. This was, this is, in the DNA of our film.
You can help us by a thousand ways.
