Just Do It: new documentary into the murky world of direct action movements
Time for a blatant plug: this very cool film, starring some disreputable types (i.e. us), is building momentum behind it. Just Do It is an exciting new feature documentary film that follows the mischievous and risky world of UK climate activists.
In early 2009, acclaimed documentary filmmaker Emily James began filming the clandestine activities of several groups of environmental civil disobedient activists in the UK. Allowed unprecedented access, her footage shows us the people behind the politics, providing the often overlooked human element to their story as we watch them take on the combined forces of global capitalism, run-away climate change and those pesky metropolitan police!
Their adventures will entertain, illuminate and inspire, whilst inciting you to get off your arse and change the world.
Currently in post-production and set for release in early 2011, Just Do It is a film pushing boundaries. It is an experiment in crowd-funding, group production and community-engaged documentary filmmaking. Check it out!
