Just Do It lifts the lid on climate activism and the daring troublemakers who have crossed the line to become modern day outlaws

JUST DO IT is an observational documentary from award winning filmmaker Emily James, who gained exceptional access to the environmental direct action movement in the UK.

The film offers an insight into the lives of activists, focusing particularly on active members of Plane Stupid and Climate Camp. For an entire year Emily submerged herself in documenting their secret activities, getting to know and understand their motivation and their passion.

She follows inspiring and entertaining individuals who are not prepared to sit back and allow the destruction of the world’s ecosystems and climate.

In the tradition of the suffragettes and the civil rights movement, the characters have picked up the mantle of civil disobedience and direct action; they have super-glued themselves to bank trading floors, blockaded factories with D-locks and tents and attacked coal power stations en-masse, despite the very real threat of arrest.
