Filmmaker John Gianvito explores America's rich history of progressive social protest by taking viewers on a tour of the gravestones and monuments dedicated to notable American rebels and leftists. As the viewer joins Gianvito on his cross-country journey, the stories of the dissenters who disappeared from our cultural memory comes to vivid life before our very eyes. Filmed over the course of three years, Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind tells the remarkable tales of such forgotten radicals as Eugene V. Debs and Sojourner Truth. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Director John Gianvitto has crafted a hypnotic aesthetic that combines a meditation on nature, remembrances of past heroic struggles to better the lives of others, and a stirring call to carry their legacy into the present with his documentary Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind. These three themes permeate the following interview with Gianvito, conducted by Kevin B. Lee and Keith Uhlich at the film's 2007 Toronto Film Festival premiere. Full article >>
