The behind-the-scenes story of Extinction Rebellion

Nominated for the BAFTA for Outstanding Debut By A British Writer, Director or Producer

Rebellion is the first feature-length documentary to tell the behind-the-scenes story of Extinction Rebellion from its launch in 2018.

Given unprecedented access, the filmmakers follow a group of unlikely allies who have come together to confront the climate emergency, depicting the highs and lows of the movement as they crash into the status quo – and each other.

Rebellion captures the human drama of social movements first hand and questions the health of our democracy as we witness the right to protest come under attack.

Rebellion was released in cinemas on Friday 18th March 2022, with a national Q&A tour, and on Netflix on Friday 1st April 2022.
