Two groups of activists in different countries form an unexpected alliance in this raw and timely, insider’s view of the world of direct action and climate activism.
A small community in North East England have spent decades fighting plans for a new coal mine next to their homes. Having exhausted all legal avenues to protect their valley, they feel they have no choice but to occupy the area to halt work commencing. Meanwhile in Germany, concerned citizens put their bodies on the line to save the ancient Hambach forest from one of Europe’s biggest coal mines.
Filmed from within these two groups, Finite is an urgent and emotional insight into a David and Goliath battle with fossil fuel corporations.
On Monday the 13th of March we hosted a special panel discussion following a screening of this film.
