Giants details the efforts and challenges neighbors of Eastmoreland confronted in their attempts to save these unique trees.

Director's Statement

The nonprofit NW Documentary approached local filmmakers to create a collective film portraying trees in Portland, Oregon. I knew I wanted to talk about the changes the city was undergoing due to expansive development and how this was affecting communities and their environment. Save The Giants inspired me to once again believe in the power of community and I hope it inspires you.
