Rebellion is the first feature-length documentary to tell the behind-the-scenes story of Extinction Rebellion from its launch in 2018 - screening for one night only on Fri 25 March.

Given unprecedented access, filmmakers Maia Kenworthy and Elena Sánchez Bellot 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.

This film 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.
