How to Blow Up a Pipeline

  •   Daniel Goldhaber
  •   United States

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 (Runaways), Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant), Lukas Gage (Euphoria) and Marcus Scribner (Black-ish)—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.
