The blurb makes this sound...unappealing, to say the least.

Do NOT be put off by the blurb!

Environmental activists...what a canny bunch they are. And...they don't come much cannier than this lot! The hapless, the hopeless, the hysterical...their ideologies are what bind them. The disparate, the desperate, they are dissidents to themselves and others. Oh what a tangled web they weave...nymphos, sapphos and saddos as they are, they have an axe to grind, a fight to fight and a jaw-dropping point to make. And...they make it...loud and unexpectantly clear!

Daniel Goldhaber's storytelling skills are intricate and vast. The pace, the twists, the turns, the editing...fuelled along with neither a trip nor a hiccup. The timeline itself is testament to the thought process that went on before the cameras started to roll. One minute you're here, then you're there. Breath-holding, eye-welling, edge of the seat kind of stuff.

This is a film that has everything and more. It has a purpose. 


The(ir) Blurb...

Inspired by Andreas Malm’s book of the same name, director Daniel Goldhaber (Cam) spins a tense and taut thriller that is part heist movie, part exploration of the climate crisis. Featuring a tremendous ensemble cast, How to Blow Up a Pipeline follows a crew of young activists who plan a mission to sabotage an oil pipeline. With their daredevil plan in motion, each character’s motivations are revealed via flashbacks as the film barrels towards its explosive climax, in a timely and vital call to arms.
