How to Blow Up a Pipeline | SproutsFF23
How to Blow Up a Pipeline by Daniel Goldhaber
Amsterdam Premiere | 2022 | United States | 104 minutes
closing film // eco – out of competition
This tightly edited, nail biting eco thriller based on the eponymous bestselling book perfectly bridges the divide between awareness raising arthouse and entertaining blockbuster. A quintessential heist movie of our rapidly changing times that rightfully shows the multitude of faces and motives behind a fast-growing global movement of radical climate activism. Cinemas should be flooded with environmental stories like these.
The awards from the film festival will be presented during the concluding ceremony preceding the screening. The film is part of Sprouts Film Festival 2023, which will be held May 10-14.
