The screening will be followed by a bumber Q&A with Director Emily James.

Just Do It lifts the lid on climate activism and the daring troublemakers who have crossed the line to become modern day outlaws. Emily James spent over a year embedded in activist groups such as Climate Camp and Plane Stupid to document their clandestine activities. With unprecedented access, Just Do It introduces you to a powerful cast of mischievous and inspiring characters who put their bodies in the way; they blockade factories, attack coal power stations and glue themselves to the trading floors of international banks despite the very real threat of arrest.

Their adventures will entertain, illuminate and inspire.

It's not possible to pre-book tickets in advance for this screening, but if you'd like to reserve a ticket contact Laura at and your ticket can be waiting for you to purchase on the night.
