“Rousing stuff” **** EMPIRE

“Smart, funny, adrenalised portrait of 21st-century activism” Danny Leigh, The Guardian

This Monday Just Do It gets a very special PREVIEW screening at the Lexi Cinema in North London. Hosted by the Tipping Point Film Fund - one of the film's very first supporters - the screening will be followed by a bumper Q&A featuring director Emily James in conversation with the Tipping Point Film Fund. 

Tickets are a bargain at £5 so don't miss the chance to catch the film on the big screen before it comes to cinemas nationwide from 15th July. 

Just Do It – a tale of modern-day outlaws
The world of environmental direct action has remained a secretive one, until now. Emily James spent over a year embedded in activist groups such as Climate Camp and Plane Stupid to document their clandestine activities. 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 inspire.

Just Do It is in cinemas nationwide this Summer. Find a screening near you:
