10.30AM SUN 3RD JULY
The compelling story of a group of ordinary people who form the Extinction Rebellion and stop playing by the rules, embrace civil disobedience and sound the alarm to climate breakdown.
From Extinction Rebellion’s launch in 2018, we follow those at the centre as they navigate the highs and lows of crashing into the status quo – and each other. Unlikely allies, from an international climate lawyer to an organic vegetable farmer, strive to work together.
Both rebellious and flawed, they reveal the human drama at the heart of social change. Change that cuts to the heart of who we really want to be.
A nuanced and complicated film which will encourage audiences to leave behind preconceived notions of activism and recognise the challenges we all face. Rebellion crucially tells a story about the health of democracy.
Panel: Suzanne Donisthorpe with guests Jacinta Walsh and Rilka Laycock-Walsh
