Screening of ‘Just Do It’ + Q&A with director

Tipping Point’s next film club night at the Lexi Cinema in London will screen Emily James’s Just Do It – a tale of modern-day outlaws. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Emily James.

The inside story of some of the UK’s biggest troublemakers, Just Do It is a feature documentary about environmental direct action. Crowd funded and released this summer, Just Do It follows some fantastically inspiring women and men who most definitely got off their derrieres and did something – and made a difference. What more can you ask for?!

Seriously topical but never so serious that it gets caught up in polemic, it’s a terrific story packed with characters and told with passion’David Hughes, Empire Magazine

 

The Film:

The world of direct action has remained a secretive one, until now. With unprecedented access, Just Do It takes you on an astonishing journey behind the scenes of a community of people who refuse to sit back and allow the destruction of their world. Torpedoing the tired clichés of the environmental movement, Just Do It introduces you to a powerful cast of mischievous and inspiring characters who put their bodies in the way; they super-glue themselves to bank trading floors, blockade factories and attack coal power stations en-masse, despite the very real threat of arrest. Their adventures will entertain, illuminate and inform.
