"Rousing stuff"  ★★★★

Just Do It lifts the lid on climate activism and the daring troublemakers who have crossed the line to become modern-day outlaws. Documented over a year, Emily James' film follows these activists as they blockade factories, attack coal power stations and glue themselves to the trading floors of international banks despite the very real threat of arrest.

"A smart, funny, adrenalised portrait of 21st century activism" Danny Leigh - The Guardian



JDI on tour :: the Scotland diaries :: day one – Edinburgh

And so it begins, Just Do It is on tour in Scotland!
After a very soggy day, the team settled in at theEdinburgh Filmhouse for a very rock ‘n roll freshly squeezed orange juice before the screening.

Then it was over to Simon of Take One Action to introduce the film:

As the curtain fell, the credits rolled to huge rounds of applause from our sold-out full house(!) and it was time for the Q&A to get underway. Our panellists, director Emily James, editor and narrator James Leadbitter, activist Dan Glass and Liz Murray of WDM Scotland were led in riveting conversation by Simon Bateson of Take One Action.

The audience listen and discuss:

Huge thanks to the Filmhouse for having us, and to Ric and Simon of Take One Action for hosting the screening! If you missed out, Just Do It continues its run in Edinburgh tonight the 12th, 13th and Monday 15th. Book your tickets here.

Next stop: Aberdeen!

    JUST WATCH IT!

    Fun to watch with great background music and commentary, Engaging and informative. You will never accept the stereo-types of direct-action activist portrayed in the Establishment media, after you watch this.

    GRACIAS EMILY, THE FILM CREW & THE ACTIVISTS!
