A group of environmentalists devises a daring plan to disrupt an oil pipeline.
Climate activist Xochitl (Ariela Barer) was recently orphaned after an extreme heat wave killed her mother. Disenchanted with how little change her fight against the climate crisis seems to bring about, she turns to sabotage and destruction of environmentally unfriendly properties such as cars and yachts. Together with a group of like-minded people, she embarks on a daring mission to take their protests to the next level: blowing up an oil pipeline in West Texas.
How To Blow Up a Pipeline is a highly topical eco-thriller masquerading as a heist film that feels like a New Hollywood nail-biter from the 1970s. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and is based on the controversial non-fiction book of the same name by Andreas Malm.
