[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

Based on the epony­mous novel by Andreas Malm, this thril­ler revol­ves around the sabo­ta­ge car­ri­ed out by a group of mili­tant eco­lo­gi­cal acti­vists. People are gathe­ring in the desert. They’re the­re to prepa­re a mis­si­on: some have alre­a­dy felt the effects of envi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­ti­on, others are frus­tra­ted cli­ma­te acti­vists for whom radi­cal methods appear the only means of pro­test­ing against the cli­ma­te cata­stro­phe. Their plan is to sabo­ta­ge a pipe­line to knock the oil busi­ness off balan­ce and thus ensu­re chan­ge, whe­re other forms of resis­tance have alre­a­dy exhaus­ted their useful­ness. The film is a varia­ti­on on a heist thril­ler and a psy­cho­lo­gi­cal stu­dy of acti­vists bet­ween per­so­nal con­cern, radi­cal­i­sa­ti­on and doubt.
