“I put my body in the way and I don't mind being arrested”, Marina Pepper is a classified domestic extremist, renowned for making tea for police officers and bailiffs while they are in the midst of evicting her. Marina is one of a growing number of modern-day outlaws – people who care about what is happening to our planet and are prepared to take action to stop it. Previously a secretive world, filmmaker Emily James was granted unprecedented access to follow a community of UK environmental activists. It’s an action packed time, with activists scaling the chimney of Didcot Power Station, locking themselves to the Royal Bank of Scotland and tangling with gung ho police at the Copenhagen Summit. Articulate, funny and engaging, the ensemble cast care passionately about the environment on a global level, but work locally, with courage, determination and manners to take a stand.

 

Just Do It is an independently produced film made possible by over 100 volunteers and 447 crowd funders.
