Just do it: A Tale of Modern- Day Outlaws
Wednesday, March 26th, 2014. 17:30 - 19:00
Just Do It is a documentary that lifts the lid on climate activism and the daring troublemakers who have crossed the line to become modern-day outlaws. Documented over a year, Emily James’ film follows these activists as they blockade factories, attack coal power stations and glue themselves to the trading floors of international banks despite the very real threat of arrest.
The film is a story of people standing up for what they believe in and making themselves heard. But it was a story that needed to be told without the creative constraints of traditional production models or the editorial control of big investors. And so it was that Just Do It – the totally independent project – was born.
Staying true to its principles, this film has been made possible thanks to the power of the crowd; the generosity of almost 500 crowd funders, an army of over 100 volunteers, and a slate of indie film giants, all of whom have given generously of their time, and expertise.
The Film Club, in cooperation with Cinema Politica is free and open for everyone. After the screening we will go to a nearby pub to hang out and discuss the movie. Welcome!
