Sofa Generation, The

The filmmakers interview members of different activist organizations and discuss basic questions regarding activism and its role in a democratic society. Each organization is given the chance to voice their opinions and the audience is left to consider and critique their stands on key issues, including Amnesty International’s worldwide campaign for human rights and the local resistance to the damming of the Icelandic highlands.
