How to Blow Up a Pipeline
Resonant and riveting, this eco-thriller sees a crew of young environmental activists from around the country gather together to carry out a dangerous mission to sabotage an American oil pipeline. Inspired by the controversial book of the same name by Andreas Malm, writer-director Daniel Goldhaber marshals a group of rising stars for the film’s passionate cast of characters—including Ariela Barer, Forrest Goodluck, Lukas Gage, and Marcus Scribner—whose bruising personal histories and complex motivations form the emotional backbone of the story. While ingeniously employing the tropes of the heist genre—from perilous scenes of bomb-making to FBI agents hot on their trail—Goldhaber executes a smartly told and emboldening tale about a new generation desperate for justice in the face of the growing climate crisis.
