Finite: The Climate Of Change (12A)
Director: Rich Felgate
UK, 2022, 1 hour 38 minutes
This is an insider's view of the world of direct action; a raw, authentic and emotional insight into the David and Goliath battle between frontline communities, activists and fossil fuel corporations. In County Durham in the gorgeous countryside of the Pont Valley the local community have been fighting off a new opencast coal mine for decades. They are joined by German campaigners from the ancient Hambach forest who have built a community of tree houses to protect the remaining trees. This urgent, emotional report from the frontline shows what smart, persistent protest can achieve.
