Summary This powerful, funny, and inspiring new documentary from filmmaker Emily James tells the thrilling story of a remarkable group of environmental activists as they wage a series of direct-action campaigns across Great Britain and Europe. The main subjects are five young British activists whose serious commitment to environment justice and nonviolent resistance is rivaled only by their wicked sense of humor and satire. The film brings us inside the group's spirited planning sessions, and takes us on a wild ride as they clash with police, blockade factories, occupy coal power stations, and glue themselves to factory floors. With its deeply human take on the principles of civil disobedience and the pragmatics of political activism, Just Do It is an excellent resource for educators looking to inspire discussion about the kinds of nonviolent movements that are now sweeping the globe. Especially suitable for courses in political science, government, environmental ethics, and sociology, and for campus event programming dedicated to social issues
