Ahead of its U.S. theatrical release next week, realscreen presents an exclusive clip from Greg Barker‘s Sundance doc We Are The Giant, which looks at six protesters campaigning against injustice during the Arab Spring.

The film, which had its world premiere at Sundance in January and its Canadian premiere at Hot Docs, will be released by Music Box Films in New York and Los Angeles on December 12.

Filmed largely in secret over the past two and a half years, the doc sees former war correspondent Barker (Manhunt) shooting intimate portraits of individuals from different walks of life, as they challenge the ruling regimes that are attempting to quell or crush national uprisings.

Talking to realscreen in January about the making of the film, the director explained: “Some of this stuff was from the Internet and some we needed to smuggle out, but I really wanted to make the film feel like it was made from the ground up, like it was made from the revolutionaries themselves.”

Check out a scene from the film below, exclusive to realscreen. Note that it includes graphic, violent content:
