Greg I. Hamilton


Greg wrote and co-directed The Movement: One Man Joins An Uprising which was a Short Film Grand Jury Prize nominee at Sundance and was selected for 20 other festivals, winning five awards (including Best Documentary at Breckenridge). Greg worked closely on the film’s release, helping it reach well over a million viewers through broadcast and cable TV, airline, festivals, and more. Greg has a passionate enthusiasm for big, exciting projects that genuinely move people. As a cultural anthropologist, he studies people: everything we do and particularly the things we do well. Greg believes in sharing stories that inspire us all to question assumptions of what’s possible—so we can be our very best at whatever turns us on. Learn more about Greg’s work at or IMDb.

Director’s Statement: “We journeyed to a magical place, onto a wild river, and into the unknown. We came back with an epic adventure story … and much more. As a filmmaker, I take seriously the obligations that come with the access we received to film a first-ever expedition on an at-risk river. It was a magnificent opportunity and now I am determined to share this important story as far and wide as possible.”
