An opportunity to come together with others to discuss and debate the challenging themes and controversial ideas presented in the film How to Blow Up a Pipeline, which is an adaptation of Andreas Malm's 2021 book by the same name.
Location: 27 University Square, Room 01/003
Queens Film Theatre has various screenings of the film running from Friday 5th May until Thursday 11th May - details and tickets here. The film is also showing at other cinemas.
A crew of young environmental activists execute a daring mission to sabotage an oil pipeline in this taut and timely thriller that is part high-stakes heist, part radical exploration of the climate crisis.
Inspired by the controversial book of the same name by Andreas Malm, writer-director Daniel Goldhaber marshals a group of rising stars for the film’s passionate cast of characters - including Ariela Barer (Runaways), Sasha Lane (American Honey), Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant), Lukas Gage (Euphoria) and Marcus Scribner (Black-ish) - whose bruising personal histories and complex motivations form the emotional backbone of the story.
While ingeniously employing the tropes of the heist genre - from perilous scenes of bomb-making to FBI agents hot on their trail - Goldhaber executes a smartly told and emboldening tale about a new generation desperate for justice in the face of the growing climate crisis.
"A fiercely watchable thriller which had me biting my nails down to the wrists...Tarantino-esque - ★★★★" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
