OGAN writes:

“This film adaptation of Andreas Malm’s incendiary nonfiction book is a stunning wake-up call on the imminent dangers of the climate crisis.  Following a group of young environmental activists on a daring mission to sabotage an oil pipeline, this taut and timely thriller is part high-stakes heist, part radical exploration of the existential threat we all face.  The film opens in theaters April 7—so this is a chance for Bay Area activists to get a sneak peak at this groundbreaking film

The science on climate change has been clear for a very long time now.  Yet, despite decades of appeals, mass street protests, petition campaigns, and peaceful demonstrations, we are still facing a booming fossil fuel industry, rising seas, rising emission levels, and a rising temperature.  With the stakes so high it’s vital that the climate movement look at the history of the Suffragettes, the American Civil Rights Movement, the Anti-Apartheid movement, or Indian independence—to deflate the fallacy that historic, transformative change was accomplished by non-violent, state-sanctioned means alone.

OGAN is in no way advocating for violence or blowing up pipelines – and topics like this are serious issues not to be joked about. But we do hope this film will contribute to a vital strategic discussion for the climate justice movement, and encourage our efforts to be bolder and more effective.”
