We Are The Giant transports viewers to the front lines of the Arab Spring through the courageous stories of six extraordinary people grappling with the dilemma at the heart of all struggles for justice and freedom: whether to take up arms and fight, or to advocate change through peace and non-violence. Filming largely in secret and at great risk over the past two and a half years, award-winning director and former war correspondent Greg Barker (Manhunt frames intimate portraits of individuals from very different walks of life resolving to stand up for what they believe in and challenge the oppressive regimes determined to crush popular uprisings. Mobilizing in the streets in Libya, Syria and Bahrain, as well as on Facebook and Twitter, these inspired young activists have been awakening the world to their plight and changing the course of history. Among these unlikely heroes are the outspoken sisters Maryam and Zainab Alkhawaja (whose Twitter handle “Angry Arabiya” has over 40,000 followers), both fiercely determined to protest for human rights even under perpetual threat of imprisonment and exile. This timely documentary follows the everyday decisions that transform not just personal lives but the fates of nations, reminding us that we are all products of revolutions and offering hope in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Inherent Vice won top spot on the per theater chart with an average of $65,637 in five theaters. This is the fifth best per theater average for the year, which is much better than expected. Second place went to The Imitation Game with an average of $34,010 in 25 theaters. It still has plenty of room to expand. The final film in the $10,000 club was Wild with an average of $13,198 in 116 theaters. It too has some room to expand, while it has also reached some level of mainstream success. More...
